About the album

Once again in 2015, the Spannungen Festival presented two works that reveal the great breadth of European musical culture in the 1870s. Today we have the privilege of counting these masterpieces among the crown jewels of the period. Spannungen means “tensions.” This chamber music festival takes place in the acoustically superb turbine hall of a hydroelectric power plant, and tensions are also what the emotionally charged musical interpretations at this event promise. In 1873 Verdi wrote a string quartet- the only work of chamber music in his entire output. It was intended to serve as a pastime during a long stay in Naples. Only later did he make clear to the world that he was not indifferent to this work’s quality. Six years later, Dvorak wrote his tenth String Quartet. This live recording impressively juxtaposes the Romantic styles of Central Europe and the Mediterranean.
