Piano Quintet in F minor
César Franck (1822-1890)
Molto moderato quasi lento – Allegro
Lento con molto sentimento
Allegro non troppo ma con fuoco

Pianist and composer Nicolas Namoradze, whose performances have been hailed by critics as “sparkling …sensitive and coloristic” (New York Times) and “simply gorgeous” (Wall Street Journal), came to international attention in 2018 upon winning the triennial Honens International Piano Competition in Calgary, Canada – the largest piano prize in the world. The Calgary Herald called him “unparalleled” and “a pianist’s pianist” writing: “the refinement of his playing was of international standard, and everywhere his interpretative skills commanded attention and admiration.” Namoradze’s upcoming activities include debut recitals at Carnegie Hall (New York), Wigmore Hall (London) and Konzerthaus Berlin, recordings on the Honens and Hyperion labels, and performances with orchestras such as the London Philharmonic.
