Mozart – String Quintet in G minor (K.516)

Sally Beamish (a violist as well as a composer) joins the Elias Quartet to play a piece she wrote inspired by her Quaker uncle and based on a canon by the 16th Century English composer Thomas Tallis, sometimes sung at the end of Quaker worship as a prelude to night. It is followed by one of Mozart’s great masterpieces, the quintet he composed as his father lay dying, where the addition of an extra viola to the texture is one of many ways in which the music seems to go beyond anything he had attempted before.
