Kammerata at Konz Musik Festival
The first concert of the season will be doubly festive:
Kammerata Luxembourg will be invited for the first time to the Konz Musik Festival; at the same time, we celebrate the 200th birthday of César Franck. Together with the pianist Joseph Moog, we will perform a mature work by the Liège composer, the great Quintet for piano and strings. Here, César Franck puts into practice his concept of thematic coherence between all the movements, while at the same time breathing new life into French chamber music.
The Trio in G major by the young Claude Debussy is not without its reminders of Franck. At the age of 18, Debussy composed this score in Fiesole, Italy. He had gone there as accompanist and piano teacher to Tschaikowsky’s patron, Nadeschda von Meck. The work is the first clear evidence of the young composer’s talent; the scherzo in particular illustrates his instinct for sweet mixtures of sound.
