When you add a piano to a string trio, whole worlds of emotion open up. Brahms’ exuberant First Piano Quartet begins in full-blooded song and ends with a fiery salute to the gypsy fiddlers of Hungary – and believe us, these four RSNO players won’t hold back! Gabriel Fauré, meanwhile, astonished the elegant salons of Belle Époque Paris with his passionate First Piano Quartet: half an hour of melody, charm, and the most delicious kind of decadence.
