Brahms: Quartet in B-flat Major, Op. 67

The famed foursome from Denmark returns to PCMS with a new program entitled The Hunt. “Hear the horns calling through the centuries,” writes the Quartet of this innovative program. “It’s all about hunting, from Haydn and Mozart classical imitations of hunting trips to Brahms’s large-scale last string quartet to Jörg Widmann’s Jagdquartett, where the poor cellist has to play the hunted fox, who finally gets shot in the end.”
