It is only appropriate, in a cycle of the complete works of the foremost composer of Intermezzi, that there should be an intermezzo in the cycle itself.
Taking a small respite from the solo piano works, Garrick Ohlsson is joined by his long-time friends and close collaborators, the eminent Takács Quartet, in performances of two great chamber works of Brahms. First, his serene, Schubertian A Major Quartet, a work of incredible beauty and heavenly length. After intermission, the Piano Quintet, a turbulent, passionate work imbued with high drama and great verve, will receive a masterful performance from this “dream team” of chamber musicians.
