Louis Théodore Gouvy: Impromptu For Cello And String Quartet In D Major By Les Pléiades And François Dumont

Unified playing in bright spirits

Having been born in the tumultuous period of the Prussian-Austrian war, which heavily influenced his perspective on life. Seemingly not for this work, however. Tthe joyfulness of this piece comes in the fact the melody is shared between all players. The piano begins before passing from the low to the high end of the quartet. Finally they all share in a harmonised version, giving a real sense of community. Listen to the joy in face of war.
