Lunch Time Concert – Dorchester Piano Quartet

Dorchester Piano QuartetOn Thursday 24th November 2016 at 1.00pm, the Dorchester Piano Quartet will be playing a lunchtime concert at Dorset County Museum.

Jennifer Curiel (violin), Pasha Willis (viola), Sally Flann (cello), Peter Oakes (piano) make up the Dorchester Piano Quartet.

The Dorchester Piano Trio was formed when Russell Dawson (violin) and Peter Oakes (piano) played a duo concert and Sally Flann, who was in the audience, introduced herself as a cellist who would be pleased to play Trios. After around ten years of the Dorchester Piano Trio, Russell stood down and Jenny Curiel (violin) and Pasha Willis (viola) joined Sally and Peter to form the Dorchester Piano Quartet.

As a Trio or Quartet we often include solo sonatas, and the November concert includes the wonderful Sonatina for violin and piano by Dvorak. It combines the Czech composer’s love of folk melody with his feeling for American music (he was Director of the National Conservatory of Music in New York from 1892 to 1895.)

The Fauré Piano Quartet sits historically somewhere between the music of Franck and Ravel: it has all the ‘French’ qualities of clarity, beauty and restraint, while being a wonderful concert piece, full of melody, rich harmony and drama.

Thursday 24th November 2016 at 1.00pm. The performance is FREE although a donation of £3 is encouraged to cover costs.
