premiere, but was able to establish itself in the years that followed.
Today the work belongs to the core chamber music repertoire. This urtext edition includes a set of parts.
Josef Suk's piano quartet (1874-1935) quickly became a standard work,
not least as a result of the extensive concerts given by the Bohemian
Quartet, in which Suk was second violinist. This is however the first
scholarly-critical edition of this work. It is based largely on a
revision of the first edition which contains Suk's alterations of 1914
and appeared in 1924, on the first copy as well as on newly discovered
copies of the parts. Valuable information has also been extracted from
the printed parts as the original copies are now no longer extant.
Includes parts for violin, viola, cello, and piano.

Manfred Trojahn's amply dimensioned piano quartet in four movements with
a duration of approx. 40 minutes was composed and developed in several
The inner movements, a Vivace characterised by lombard
rhythms and vitality and a dream-like adagio were written in the Mozart
Year 2005. By 2008 the outer movements were completed. The opening
Adagio "Zerbrochenes Lied" is an imposing lamentation of the dead
whereas the Finale, a profound, moving "Wanderlied", was dedicated to
Trojahn's friend and composer Wilhelm Killmayer on the occasion of his
80th birthday. In this way Trojahn's work stands in the tradition of Mozart's two piano quartets, but adds a biographical element.
This is a large, musically demanding but rewarding work for ambitious musicians.
