Shostakovich, Raff & Brahms

Shostakovich, Raff and Brahms

Details

Three extraordinary works showing the full range of the dramatic, virtuosic and emotional possibilities of chamber music.

Shostakovich’s theatrical, short octet is one of the great works of twentieth-century chamber music. Swiss-German composer Joachim Raff brings music brimming with joyous energy and lush melody. Finally, Brahms’ youthful and sonorous second sextet brings this chamber music recital to a ravishing close. With six and eight string musicians performing in perfect synergy, this is a performance of enthralling energy and compelling intimacy.
