Hello everyone, Once again, it has been a long time since I've posted anything here. Over the past year, I have been recording my chamber works using the remote recording technique (where the musicians involved record their parts separately), and have just finished recording my Piano Quartet no. 2 in G minor in this manner. I have already posted a live recording of the second movement here (https://www.youngcomposers.com/t38945/piano-quartet-no-2-op-10-mvt-2/), but the quality was not that great. Here, the quality is significantly better, and more importantly, the piece is complete! The Piano Quartet no. 2 in G minor, Op. 10 was written between 2019 and 2020, 3 years after the Piano Quartet no. 1 in B-flat major, Op. 3. It is my longest chamber work, lasting roughly 32 minutes, and has 3 movements. It was actually written concurrently with the Lacrimosa for piano quartet, Op. 11, hence the same orchestration. The whole piano quartet is based entirely on 2 distinct themes, which provide the melodic foundations of each movement. The 3 movements are as follows: Movement 1. - Andante misterioso - Moderato patetico (G minor) Movement 2. - Adagietto - Andante (C major) Movement 3. - Larghetto - Allegro grazioso (G minor-major) I would like to give a huge thanks to everyone who helped me bring this recording project to fruition. Their performances and services were phenomenal, and I could not have done this without them! The performers are as follows: - Javier Orman, violin (Mvts. 1, 2, and 3) https://www.javierorman.com/ - Dima Ratush, viola (Mvt. 2) - JonathanCello, cello/viola lines played on cello (Mvts. 1 and 3) https://www.fiverr.com/jonathancello/do-session-cellist-for-your-musical-project?utm_campaign=gigs_show&utm_medium=shared&utm_source=copy_link&utm_term=engey - Avigail Arad, cello (Mvt. 2) https://www.fiverr.com/avigailarad/teach-you-how-to-play-the-cello?context_referrer=user_page&ref_ctx_id=442e84e2-4238-452e-9737-c8c33da05bd5&pckg_id=1&pos=1 - Myself, piano (Mvts. 1, 2, and 3) Here are the recordings of all the movements: Here is the original video of the second movement: As always, I hope you all enjoy. 🙂
