Pianist Janina Fialkowska, tenor Robin Tritschler and the Dante Quartet perform at the 2016 Belfast Music Society International Festival of Chamber Music in a programme of Chopin and a world premiere commission from the festival. Janina Fialkowska performs Chopin's Impromptu in G flat, the Nocturne in B major, Op.9 No.3, and Waltz in B minor, Op. 69 No. 2, and, to complete her programme, his Scherzo No. 1 in B minor - a work dedicated to Thomas Albrecht (then secretary to the Saxon Embassy in Paris), who convinced Chopin to stay in Vienna to further his career - and the Ballade No.4 in F minor, dedicated to Baroness Rothschild. Both the Scherzo and the Fourth Ballade are considered to be among the composer's most difficult works.

Also in the programme is the world premiere of a new commission from the BMS festival, written by Northern Irish composer Philip Hammond. 'Lament for an Irish Rebel' is based on texts spanning three centuries and was composed especially for tenor Robin Tritschler.

In the final programme of music from this week's series of concerts from the 2016 Belfast Music Society International Festival of Chamber Music, pianist Janina Fialkowska begins with two Preludes by Chopin. Following this, a group of Schubert songs performed by tenor Robin Tritschler and pianist Christopher Glynn. And to complete today's recital, the Dante Quartet are joined by pianist Daniel Tong to perform Shostakovich's Piano Quintet in G minor, Op 57.

Originally written for the Beethoven Quartet and completed in September 1940, the work is one of Shostakovich's most famous chamber pieces and on its premiere in November 1940, the composer himself performed at the piano with the Quartet. The work is in five movements - beginning with a slow Prelude followed by a Fugue, then a Scherzo, a slower Intermezzo and finishing with an Allegretto finale.

Chopin: Prelude E flat minor Op.28 No 14; Prelude in D flat major Op.28 No 15
