Notes & Reviews:

Brahm's two String Quartets, Op. 51 were the first he published but, completed in his 40th year, are very much mature masterpieces. He wasy very conscious of the tradition that lay behind the quartet genre, and the spirits of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert ensured that he took the greatest of care when preparing his own quartets. Each perfectly proportioned movement of these works creates its own unique expressive narrative, exploring bitter-sweet tonalities and thematic treatment ranging from tender lyricism to dramatic intensity.
