Sydney Symphony Orchestra: Brahms String Sextet No.1 (Premiere)
In Brahms’ First String Sextet his best qualities shine through – gorgeous melodies and a rich romantic sound.
The sextet adds an extra viola and cello to the conventional string quartet, and Brahms makes full use of the additional lower voices, allowing him to create an intricate blend of light and shade in this intimate and expressive music.
