About

This live recording of Brahms’ chamber music was recorded at the remarkable chamber music festival “Music in Heimbach Hydropower Station” during 2005.
 
This two disc set contains two of Brahms’ finest chamber works. The Piano Quintet had a fraught history and took a long time to acquire its definitive form, finally being completed in 1864. In the summer of the same year, Brahms composed the first three movements of his second String Sextet, completing the work in the following year.
 
These pieces are played here by an internationally renowned group of artists including Lars Vogt, Christian Tetzlaff and Isabelle Faust.
