The first of two concerts of Brahms's chamber music.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Quartet’s performance tonight will now be introduced by Angela Dixon (Head of Music at the Barbican Centre) and will be followed by a discussion between James Jolly (journalist and broadcaster) and Professor Andreas Schulz (Managing Director of Gewandhausorchester Leipzig). They will explore the fascinating history and tradition of the orchestra and its special relationship to the music of Brahms.

Brahms String Quartet No 1 in C minor, Op 51

Gewandhaus Quartet

Like his first symphony, it took many years for Brahms to write his first string quartet. It finally emerged as a work of similar dramatic intensity: tense, tragic, yet energetic and lyrically beautiful.
