Brahms String Sextet No.1: Recorded Live

Premieres Saturday 5 September, 8pm AEST

Join us this Saturday evening for a special performance in collaboration with Sydney Opera House. 

 

 

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.
