The esteemed Brentano String Quartet, whose performances The Independent (London) calls “passionate, uninhibited and spellbinding,” returns to our stage for an encore appearance with the superb violist Hsin-Yun Huang and a concert of revelatory chamber works.
Mozart’s six string quintets are not often performed, but they are among the finest examples of his chamber music writing. Mozart loved the rich sound of the viola — his own instrument of choice when he played chamber music with friends. The ensemble performs three of the works, finishing with a masterpiece of the genre, the G-Minor Quintet, which culminates in a finale infused with joy.
Concert stream available for one week from date of broadcast.
