In the Evening Concert on Radio 4 you can listen to the brothers Lucas and Arthur Jussen. In the Vredenburg concert hall, a true Jussen Weekend was organised on these successful pianists. In Vredenburg Leeuwenbergh, among others together with the Rubens Quartet, they held a Schubertiade, focusing on Schubert in various instrumental casts.
Schubert’s Arpeggione Sonata and the Trout Quintet are mirroring each other as it were. The Arpeggione Sonata mainly is dreamy and melancholic. The Trout Quintet, written during the carefree summer of 1819, radiates energy and optimism, written by a composer who obviously did not worry about the holy seriousness that surrounded chamber music in his time. With this diptych full of contrast, Arthur and Lucas Jussen and the Rubens Quartet demonstrate their versatile talents.
Arpeggione Sonate D821; Forellenkwintet D667; Fantasie D940; Strijkkwintet `Die Forelle` D667; Frühlingsglaube; Der Einsame; Der Jüngling und der Tod; Der Schiffer
