More than twelve years after its initial incursion into the music of Brahms, the Belcea Quartet now presents the eagerly awaited complete recording of his string quartets.
A powerful style and a sense of musical architecture are the two qualities most often attributed to the Belcea, which is now one of the top international quartets. And those characteristics blossom to the full in Brahms.
For the Piano Quintet, its members are joined by Till Fellner. This Austrian former student of Alfred Brendel is one of today’s most respected pianists, combining grace, rigour and musical intelligence.
