MAHLER Piano Quartet in A minor

STRAUSS Piano Quartet in C minor, Op. 13

BRAHMS Piano Quartet in A, Op. 26

Mahler and Richard Strauss may be household names to orchestra-goers, but they are almost unknown for their chamber music. Mahler’s haunting single movement was composed during his late-teens, while Strauss’ full-length work in four movements dates from 1884 when he was 20. It is a wonderful piece full of hints of what was to come in the magnificent series of tone poems the first of which was premiered just two years later. Brahms’ quartet on the other hand is a fully mature piece is in his most energetic and entertaining style.
