This particular edition of Orta Festival starts again with a concert dedicated to the piano quartet. A line-up for which the greatest authors have written. It does so with the best wishes hallmarked by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Mozart’s bright Quartet in E flat major K 493 (written on 3rd June 1786, few days after the debut in Prague of Marriage of Figaro, whose sentimental moods and delicate instrumental flavours it shares), a kind of Piano concerto in miniature.
It does so with the presence of the great Serbian pianist Aleksandar Madžar along with the Swiss violinist Esther Hoppe with a solid career as a soloist, chamber musician and pedagogue, who won the first prize at ARD competition in Munich, with the Roman violinist Francesco Fiore known for his assiduous cooperation with Salvatore Accardo and with Matteo Pigato, a sought-after chamber musician along with others such as Bruno Canino, Enrico Bronzi, Aleksandar Madžar. We will listen to them also in the Fauré’s quartet op. 15 that encompasses all
the novelty of this musician’s style characterized by very refined harmonious nuances, the charming clarity of the melodic pattern and the elegance never performed of the contrapuntal writing, a context that is definitely French.
