Friday 16 October: Brighton Chamber Ensemble

10. 091020

After months of isolation and social distancing, what better work to bring to the stage than Brahms’s C minor piano quartet? An intensely personal work, it is an expression of anguish by a man in love with a married woman whose husband he admires – clearly a reference to Brahms’s own situation with Clara and Robert Schumann. The Brighton Chamber Ensemble will also perform the only surviving chamber work by Mahler that does not include voice, his piano quartet in A minor.
