Savannah Music Festival 718 – Dvorak Bass Quintet
The string instrument that turns a quartet into a quintet varies with each composer or work. Mozart added a viola, Schubert, a cello, but Antonin Dvorak chose the double bass for his G Major String Quintet, matching the full palette of the symphony orchestra. In this episode of Savannah Music Festival LIVE, we listen to a performance of Dvorak’s String Quintet in G Major, Op. 77 alongside Mozart’s Trio for Piano, Violin and Cello in E Major, K. 542.
