Tchaikovsky Souvenir de Florence
Mark Derudder, Carol Paige Violins

Jesper Svedberg, Tom Isaac Cello
Mozart wrote his Quintet in C at the height of his compositional maturity. With the same breadth and scope as that of the ‘Jupiter’ Symphony, it is regarded as one of his chamber music masterpieces. Tchaikovsky adored Florence, returning there throughout his lifetime. No doubt, his “souvenirs” from that beautiful city were not necessarily all musical – this work is far from being just a medley of Italian melodies; some dark passions lurk behind the ingratiating tunefulness of the music.
