Stormy, bold, spirited – emotions run high in Schubert’s Fantasia.
Originally written as a piano duet, Alexandre Oguey’s innovative arrangement lets an oboe and string quintet do the honours – bringing extra colour and brightness to some of Schubert’s best music.
Lighter in tone, the same romantic spirit soars in Brahms’ String Quartet No.3, where even at the music’s boldest, the sounds of tenderness are unmistakable.
