Brahms – “Complete Quartets For Piano & Strings Vol. 2” – [Capitol Records]

Hemroid The Leader   4/6/2017   12-inch, Classical

bhR-6882147-1428678818-6892

The Piano Quartet in A major, Op. 26 by Johannes Brahms, for piano, violin, viola and cello. It was completed in 1861 and received its premiere in November 1863 by the Hellmesberger Quartet with the composer playing the piano part.
This quartet is long and shows the influence of Schubert. When performed badly it is quite interminable. None of that here, Victor Allen at the piano with members of the Hollywood String Quartet, Felix Slatkin- violin, Alvin Dinkin- viola, Eleanor Allen- cello.
