Five Bucolics for viola and cello
"Central Park Reel" for violin and piano
Piano Quartet #1 in g minor, K.478
The spirit of all music comes from song and dance. A poet at the piano, Chopin greatly influenced so many others, including his fellow countryman, Lutoslawski, whose “Bucolics” are based on Polish folk melodies. The American composer Lukas Foss artfully frames this Irish dance music in his own "Central Park Reel." The genius of Mozart shines in this masterpiece, a whole opera for just four instruments.
