A Celebration of Hans Keller
10 March 2019
The Menuhin Hall, Cobham, Surrey
A celebration of Hans Keller by the Yehudi Menuhin School, where Keller taught chamber music in the 1980s.
3:15 pm : Pre-Concert Talk
The renowned pedagogue Hans Keller taught chamber music at the School at the invitation of Yehudi Menuhin, and made significant contributions to musicology and music criticism throughout his life. This pre-concert talk begins with a contextual introduction by Dr Alison Garnham, followed by an outline of Keller’s analytical style by Dr Òscar Colomina i Bosch, including examples of his practice based on Keller’s Functional Analysis. David Dolan works with pupils from The Yehudi Menuhin School to illustrate how Keller’s approach inspires his performance practice at the School, with specific focus on Mozart’s String Quartet No 15 in D minor K421.
(Running time – 1hr 15mins)
5 pm : Showcase Concert
This Showcase Concert focuses on the string quartets of Mozart and Haydn, about which Hans Keller wrote to great acclaim. Following the earlier discussion at 3.15pm, this concert will include Mozart’s String Quartet No 15 in D minor K421.
(Running time – approximately 2hrs)
