Kammermusik-Fest II

Horizontal Tabs

Info
This season, Johannes Brahms will not only play a leading role in the field of symphony, but will also take centre stage in the second concert of this year’s Kammermusik-Fest, with a presentation of his String Sextet No. 1. The two string sextets by Brahms were the first pieces of pure string chamber music, published by him. Although his publisher was still sceptical at the beginning, the sextets became a great success. Apart from his German Requiem, it was exactly these pieces that helped the young Brahms achieve his breakthrough. While he himself belittled them later as “long, sentimental pieces”, they still fascinate the audience today with their irresistible charming sound and their melodic beauty. Now, the String Sextet No. 1 will be combined with Tchaikovsky’s elegiac String Sextet “Souvenir de Florence”, created in 1890.
