Jacob Reuven and the Kerman Mandolin Quartet have just announced their new crowdfunding project to record Mozart’s Quartets on Mandolins. I immediately became a supporter and I think you should too! Here is the announcement:
“During two weeks in March we’re going to record four of Mozart’s most beautiful string quartets on two mandolins, mandola and mandocello, thereby seriously freshening up the traditional string quartet setting. We’ve been dreaming about this project ever since we started working together. We believe performing the quartets this way reveals something about Mozart and his music that so far was left hidden from the world. We invite you to become our partner in sharing this beauty with everyone.
We’re going to record four quartets:
- Divertimento in D, K.136
- “Dissonance” Quartet, K. 465
- “A Little Night Music”, K. 525
- and, Seranade Nocture, K.239
We have worked on and performed all these pieces in the past.
Because we are spread all over Europe, the only realistic way to achieve our goal is to meet up for two intense week of work and recording. Perfecting and recording 4 quartets at such a short period of time is a challenging task, but we know that with your support we can do it, and that the result will be simply beautiful.
