HAYDN String Quartet in D minor Op.42
BRAHMS Piano Quartet No.3 in C minor Op.60
SCHUMANN Piano Quintet in E flat Op.44
Brahms’s C minor Piano Quartet is full of allusions to his friends, Robert and Clara Schumann, with a radiant slow movement at its heart. Robert Schumann’s turbulent Piano Quartet, a piece that has been described as ‘a small piano concerto’, is considered to be among his finest compositions and is one of Ensemble 360’s favourite works.
“You write to become immortal, or because the piano happens to be open, or you have looked into a pair of beautiful eyes.” – Robert Schumann
