The Ludwigsburg Festival is rooted in the spirit of chamber music. Therefore we regularly invite you to exquisite groups of musicians: As a quintet, Isabelle Faust, Anne Katharina Schreiber, Antoine Tamestit, Jean-Guihen Queyras, and Alexander Melnikov present works by Robert Schumann and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In his Bach arrangements, the latter successfully reanimated the Baroque fugue. Schumann used it in the finale of his op. 44 and op. 47 of the fugato, a fugue-like passage. In the third movement of his piano quartet, he not only created one of the most beautiful melodies of the Romantic period but also laid an important foundation for the genre as such. Enjoy this carefully curated ending from an evenly carefully curated quintet.
A recording of the concert is available on our Digital Stage. It will also be broadcast by SWR2 and Deutschlandfunk Kultur at a later date.
