Roukens

Visions at Sea (for string quartet)

Dvořák

Piano Quintet No. 2 in A, Op. 81

We are delighted to present an exciting ‘first’ as Imogen Cooper and the Maxwell Quartet combine to perform Antonin Dvořák’s grand Piano Quintet in A. Written in 1887 while the composer was on holiday in the Bohemian countryside and featuring one of the composer’s most irresistible folk-style tunes, the piece was an immediate popular success at its first performance. Joey Roukens’s Visions at Sea (2011) is an evocative and haunting “dream sea voyage” with “all kinds of ‘visions’ of the Dutch maritime past.” Fragments from sea shanties are quoted with echoes of other 17th century sounds, notably music by Sweelinck.

…brilliantly fresh, unexpected and exhilarating” The Herald on The Maxwell Quartet
