Schumann A Major String Quartet, Op. 41 No. 3
Reena Esmail Saans
Suk Love Song
Franck Piano Quintet 

From romantic passion to intense hatred, music is not only often inspired by, but also can elicit profound emotions. Robert Schumann’s Quartet in A Major, which opens with a sighing “Clara” motive in homage to his beloved bride, captures the composer’s affection, but also his extreme volatility. The soaring melodies of Reena Esmail’s Saans were composed as a wedding present for a friend—a celebration of love, but also testament to the deep relationship between friends. César Franck’s explosive Piano Quintet is a tumultuous expression of a range of emotions, which inspired not only numerous tales about the genesis and effect of the work, but also holds the listener in its impassioned thrall.
