Brahms, Johannes / Festival Quartet – “Piano Quartet In C Minor, Op. 60” – [RCA Victor/ BMG]
Brahms couldn’t seal the deal and abated his frustration through musical composition.
First movement premiered by Clara Schumann, who Brahms was in love with
Often called the Werther quartet – a common theme for 19th century suicidal love birds
Almost twenty years later Brahms is in love with Mrs. Elisabeth von Herzogenberg and he finds enough of himself to finish.
The festival quartet came together at the summer festival in Aspen, and features:
Szymon Goldberg, violin
William Primrose, viola
Nikolai Graudan, cello
Victor Babin, piano
