About

After a period as a court composer at Detmold, Brahms returned to the city of his birth, Hamburg, in January 1860. Here, in relative tranquillity, he explored the then rare piano quartet repertoire. The Piano Quartet No.2 received a very sympathetic hearing in Vienna, Clara Schumann even preferring it to its immediate predecessor, the Piano Quartet, op.25 (Naxos 8572798). Its lyricism is heightened by a romantically beautiful Adagio. Mahlerís vibrant Piano Quartet in A minor dates from 1876, the end of his first year at the Vienna Conservatory, where the only completed movement was first performed.

The career of internationally admired Uzbek pianist Eldar Nebolsin was launched with his triumph at the 11th Santander International Piano Competition in 1992 where he got the Grand Prix and the Prize for the best performance of the Mozart concerto. He won First prize at the 2005 Sviatoslav Richter International Piano Competition.
