Following the two quintets, the extended Mandelring Quartet now presents the two string sextets by Johannes Brahms. This recording completes the Audite series of Brahms's chamber music for strings with the Mandelring Quartet. As in the quintets, the ensemble is joined by its long-standing former violist, Roland Glassl, for the second viola part. The second cello part is played by the renowned cellist Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt.

In Brahms's oeuvre, the sextets broke new ground. Their dark hues and their inclination towards symphonic sonorities are often accentuated. In this recording, the lyrical moments as well as Brahms's masterfully transparent, seemingly three-dimensional writing, and thus the works' inner contrasts, are also emphasised.
