Same composer, same five instruments, two completely different moods. MCO completes its 250th anniversary homage to Beethoven with both of Beethoven’s String Quintets. The C minor quintet finds Beethoven in his favourite, Symphony No 5-esque stormy key, for an epic transcription of his first piano trio. The contrasting C major trio is young Beethoven at his sunniest, charming best. A brilliant quintet of MCO musicians is led by MCO’s Artistic Director, William Hennessy AM.
