Notes & Reviews:

This 2CD set includes Brahms' three string quartets masterworks and his lovely, late second string quintet, with violist Roger Tapping. Feeling that sheet music is now a distraction rather than an aid to performance, and following much effort, the Chiara Quartet will play without printed sheet music for almost all of their upcoming concerts. 'The payback for each of us is equally rewarding, bringing us that much closer together in our music-making.' - Gregory Beaver - Chiara Quartet cellist
