Mahler

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

Gustav Mahler didn't compose much chamber music, but he did pen some touching music for piano quartet — piano with violin, viola and cello. It's known as the Piano Quartet Movement, and we hear it played in concert at the 2005 Savannah Music Festival in Georgia, by Kristian Bezuidenhout, Daniel Hope, Gro Lovdahl and Josephine Knight, piano and strings respectively.
