The piano quartet genre is often overshadowed by the piano trio and the string quartet. Yet there is a whole number of exceptional works for this formation. Three of them can be heard in this chamber music recital given in the Elbphilharmonie Recital Hall: Mozart's G major Quartet, where the composer forges a dialogue between equals for the piano and the strings, is followed by Dvořák's Piano Quartet with its melodies redolent of folk music, and the almost unknown work in C minor by the Polish Romantic composer Władysław Żeleński.

The Rolf-Liebermann-Studio was a Jewish temple until 1938. Destroyed in the Pogrom Night, ownership of the current Rolf-Liebermann-Studio passed over to the city authorities in 1941, and later to the former Northwest German Broadcasting, which arranged its conversion into a large concert hall. With its classical music concerts, readings, matinees and jazz concerts, the studio is one of the first ports of call for the culturally aware today.
