When: Sun., Oct. 19, 3 p.m. 2014
When a piano is added to a classical string quartet, the grouping is renamed a piano quintet — a misnomer for sure, as the designation implies five pianos are performing together. For the Spokane String Quartet’s season opener, the group will add pianist Armen Guzelimian to their ranks for Edward Elgar’s Piano Quintet in A minor. Back again are violinists Mateusz Wolski and Amanda Howard-Phillips, violist Jeannette Wee-Yang and cellist Helen Byrne. Also on the program, featuring mostly British composers, are the String Quartet No. 1 in D Major by Benjamin Britten and Joseph Haydn’s Sonata No. 38 in F Major. All of these works are as intimate as they are soaring.
