Coincidence and intention and their effects on space and time – four professional musicians have named their ensemble after the chaos theory. One of the members is also studying physics. But what unites the four most of all is a love of chamber music and the desire to refine the impact of sound and tempo within the overall structure. Last year, the quartet was chosen as BBC Radio 3‘s New Generation Artist for 2023-2025. The laureates of the ARD Competition, the Joseph Haydn Competition, and the Bad Tölz String Quartet Competition will be bringing works from Bach to Schnittke with them to Hitzacker.

Audience Academy II with Alexander Lonquich: Schubert’s last piano sonata D 960

Tickets online

Alexander Lonquich – piano

No other composer has struggled with the classical ideal of the four-movement structure in their own work as much as the Viennese contemporary of Beethoven and admirer of Mozart, Franz Schubert. In the "Years of Crisis" 200 years ago, much remained fragmentary. Yet at the end of his life, he created piano and chamber music that squared the circle, with momentous final movements. In keeping with the festival's focus on "Four," pianist Alexander Lonquich will provide explanatory insights into one of the most moving and beautiful sonatas of the Romantic era.

Fauré Quartet

Erika Geldsetzer – violin
Sascha Frömbling – viola
Konstantin Hiedrich – cello
Dirk Mommertz – piano

Tickets online

G. Fauré (1845–1924): Lieder
J. Brahms (1833–1897): Klavierquartett Nr. 3 c-Moll op. 60
M. Mussorgsky (1839–1881): „Bilder einer Ausstellung“

The suffering Werther, one of Goethe's most famous characters, would be suitable to illustrate the work’s title page – so wrote Johannes Brahms to his publisher Simrock before his piano quartet went to print. Brahms had spent 20 years perfecting his Piano Quartet in C minor, a "work of deepest despair”. It stands in contrast to Mussorgsky's great program music "Pictures at an Exhibition" – a tribute to his deceased painter friend Viktor Hartmann. The best-known arrangement of this piece is by Gabriel Fauré, who is not only the namesake of the first-class ensemble that returns this year to Hitzacker, but who also composed extraordinary French Lieder, which the Faure Quartet "sings" on their instruments.
