Notes & Reviews:

The acclaimed Prazak Quartet offers the third volume in their cycle dedicated to the Brahms' chamber music for strings. This disc features the string quartet, Op. 51 No. 2 in an unusual pairing with a late period work, the string quintet Op. 111. Upon the work's completion, Brahms said of his marvelous quintet, "with this manuscript, you can take leave of my music, for it is high time that I stopped!" Thankfully, he did not keep his word.
