Brahms first wrote his Op.34 as a string quintet before recasting it for two pianos and then as the version for piano quintet known today. In this imaginative reconstruction as a string quintet by the Finnish cellist Anssi Karttunen, the Zebra Trio is joined by some of Britainís most outstanding string players, allowing modern listeners to hear a version of the work in textures closer to Brahmsí original thoughts.

It is coupled in this recording by Brahmsí own rarely heard version of the Clarinet Quintet, Op.115, as a string quintet, with a viola replacing the clarinet.
