Peter Frankl, Ani Kavafian, Ettore Causa, Ole Akahoshi perform together Jan. 23

Concert features piano quartets by Mozart and Dvorák

The Yale School of Music presents four faculty performers in a performance of piano quartets on Wednesday, January 23 at 8 pm. The concert, which is part of the Faculty Artist Series, features Ani Kavafian, violin; Ettore Causa, viola; Ole Akahoshi, cello; and Peter Frankl, piano.

The concert will feature three quartets for piano and strings, beginning with Mozart’s Piano Quartet in G minor, considered the first major piece in the genre, and Quartet in E-flat major, written less than a year after the first piece.

Also on the program is Dvorák’s masterful Quartet in E-flat major, Op. 87, “an unfailing crowd-pleaser… possessed of an originality that makes it worthy to stand beside the more complex corners of Brahms’ chamber output” (All Music Guide).

The concert begins at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall, located in Sprague Hall at 470 College Street (corner of Wall Street). Admission is free. For more information, visit music.yale.edu or contact the Yale School of Music concert office at 203 432-4158. MORE
