Piano Quartet in A minor
Piano Quartet in E flat major, Opus 47
Piano Quartet in G minor, Opus 25
CMS is back with a piano quartet, featuring artistic co-directors, pianist Wu Han and cellist David Finckel, along with violinist Daniel Hope (popular soloist and former member of the Beaux Arts Trio), and violist Paul Neubauer. This is a program of Romantic music by Brahms and his early mentor Robert Schumann, and a rare chamber piece by symphonist Gustav Mahler. As ever, the Romantics deliver a fully-realized fare, from deep emotion to delicate notes, at once stirring and refreshing in the way a full-bodied wine can be.
