DVOŘÁK Silent Woods (6’)
SCHUMANN Fantasiestücke Op.73 (11’)
BRAHMS Piano Quintet (43’)
‘Silent Woods’ is cello writing at its most soulfully lyrical and underscored by elegantly restrained piano. Schumann’s three short pieces pair cello and piano in perfect balance as they range across wildly contrasting fantastical melodies, moving from a dreamy opening to plunge into the fiery finale. Brahms’s Piano Quintet is a wonderfully dark masterpiece, which has been rightfully described as ‘the crown of chamber music’.
