Johannes Brahms: String Sextet No. 2 In G Major Op. 36 By The Manfred Quartet
A strong sound from six
While composers of the Romantic period had more competition than ever before, Brahms was one of the few to get to the top and remain there. With a little more oomph than a quartet, Brahms work in G Major is a comprehensive piece of string composing with expertly penned dynamics and glorious singing passages. The extra cello adds a comforting bass over which the violins project wonderful melodies. Listen and discover why Brahms’ works are pertinent to this day.
