David Korevaar – Piano Quintets

Pianist and Distinguished Professor at the University of Colorado Boulder, David Korevaar, discusses with Anna Singer his newly released CD, Piano Quintets, that features pieces by Luigi Perrachio and Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco with the Carpe Diem String Quartet. This CD includes a world premiere recording of Perrachio’s Quintet for 2 Violins, Viola, Cello and Piano and Tedesco’s Quintet No. 1 in F Major for 2 Violins, Viola, Cello and Piano Op. 69. David highlights how he found an original, unpublished manuscript of Perrachio’s Quintet in Turin, Italy while conducting extensive research on the composer. David also remembers the start of this project with the Carpe Diem String Quartets, Charles “Chas” Wetherbee who passed away from cancer in early 2023. David’s next project is recording all of Beethoven’s Sonatas which will no doubt take him a while. Listen to WQED-FM to hear David Korevaar’s Piano Quintet CD or find it online.
