BRAHMS String Quintet No.1

Brahms first string quintet shows his love of baroque music with the subtle integration of baroque dance movements he had originally written for the piano. The scoring for string quartet with a second viola produces rich textures, and we hear Brahms at the height of his creativity in what the composer himself described described as “one of my finest works”.
