Piano Quintets

The disc presents two quintets for piano and string quartet by two distinguished Hungarian composers from the 20th century: Béla Bartók and Ernst von Dohnányi. While Bartók’s Piano Quintet is an outstanding juvenilia, Dohnányi’s sophisticated work represents its author at its best.


Béla Bartók (1881-1945)
Piano Quintet C Major Sz. 23:
- I. Andante. Allegro molto
- II. Vivace (Scherzando)
- III. Adagio
- IV. Poco a poco più vivace. Vivace molto

Ernest von Dohnányi (1877-1960)
Piano Quintet No. 2 E flat Minor Op. 26:
- I. Allegro non troppo
- II. Intermezzo. Allegretto
- III. Moderato
