Chamber music originated when friends and family came together to listen to piano music in the comfort of their living rooms. That’s why we start the evening in a homely setting and let the music take us on a journey to the modern-day concert hall – a journey through the golden era of chamber music.
In Part III, we hear Brahms’ Piano Quartet No. 1 – one of the highlights from the world of chamber music. Brahms composed the first two of his three piano quartets at a relatively young age – he was still in his twenties. We’ll be celebrating a century of chamber music with the piano being accompanied by a string trio comprising three of its brightest stars.
