This program traverses through Old World Europe, beginning with the last of Mozart’s “Prussian” quartets. Scarlatti composed his E major sonata in 1757 in Madrid, where he worked for the Spanish court. 170 years later, this sonata inspired Barto´k’s third string quartet, which also draws from Hungarian folk music. Finally, we land in Mozart’s beloved Prague, where Dvor?a´k premiered this piano quintet that includes a dumka, a type of Ukrainian ballad.
