scored for two violins, viola, cello and piano
duration 20 minutes
Unlike the tradition of the piano quintet, this piece tries not to oppose piano and strings in some heroic battle. More than anything all instruments live in a delicate counterpoint, sometimes naive, simple and lyrical, sometimes childish, sometimes funky.
'Piano Quintet' is dedicated to Desguin Quartet. The first performance was on October 8, 2022 in C Harelbeke (Belgium). Desguin Quartet and Mathias at the piano recorded the piece in June 2022 at Concertgebouw Brugge.
