Fascinating guy, this Roger Reynolds (b. 1934). Studied piano, gave it up to become an engineer, became a military policeman, and then went back to school for music. There he met a composer, who whipped him into shape and his career took off. He studied and hung out with Milton Babbit, John Cage, Nadia Boulanger, […]

Story behind music and video:

“When Aragorn was abroad, from afar Arwen watched over him in thought” –Lord of the Rings

After signing with Sony we were putting together our first official release. Just before the deadline we looked at the song list and all agreed the album needed to include a new original piece. But we had 48 hours. As we prayed for help Jon recalled a tune he had almost included in a solo album, but for reasons he couldn’t remember he had not finished it. It was just the compositional catalyst we needed…. read the rest of the song on our website here: http://thepianoguys.com/portfolio/arw…

Mozart – Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor, K. 478, is considered the first major piece composed for piano quartet in the chamber music repertoire. Mozart received a commission for three quartets in 1785 from the publisher Franz Anton Hoffmeister. Hoffmeister thought this quartet was too difficult and that the public would not buy it, so he released Mozart from the obligation of completing the set. (Nine months later, Mozart composed a second quartet in E-flat major, the K. 493, anyway). Hofmeister’s fear that the work was too difficult for amateurs was borne out by an article in the Journal des Luxus und der Moden published in Weimar in June 1788. The article highly praised Mozart and his work, but expressed dismay over attempts by amateurs to perform it:
“[as performed by amateurs] it could not please: everybody yawned with boredom over the incomprehensible tintamarre of 4 instruments which did not keep together for four bars on end, and whose senseless concentus never allowed any unity of feeling; but it had to please, it had to be praised! … what a difference when this much-advertised work of art is performed with the highest degree of accuracy by four skilled musicians who have studied it carefully.” The assessment accords with a view widely held of Mozart in his own lifetime, that of a greatly talented composer who wrote very difficult music. At the time the piece was written, the harpsichord was still widely used. Although the piece was originally published with the title “Quatuor pour le Clavecin ou Forte Piano, Violon, Tallie [sic] et Basse,” stylistic evidence suggests Mozart intended the piano part for “the ‘Viennese’ fortepiano of the period” and that our modern piano is “a perfectly acceptable alternative.” The work is in three movements:
I. Allegro, in G minor
II. Andante, in B-flat major
III. Rondo (Allegro), in G major
The C. F. Peters Edition set of parts has rehearsal letters throughout the whole work; the Eulenburg Edition study score has measure numbers but no rehearsal letters, the same goes for Bärenreiter.
The quartet is also available in an arrangement for string quintet.
