Why See Los Angeles Philharmonic - All Brahms?
A Rousing Trio Of Brahms Chamber Works
One of the most revered and celebrated composers of the classical period Johannes Brahms was a master of the symphonic and sonata forms in the latter half of the 19th century. Away from the bold size and bombast of his four symphonies, the German muso was prolific when it came to chamber music, breathing new life into the genre with orchestral power, lush arranging and vibrant tonal color. Join members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic as they celebrate Brahms' genius with a triptych of his chamber works.
Star of the program 'Piano Quartet in F minor' was completed in 1864 after much revision found the composer settling on the instrumentation of piano, two violins, viola and cello. A veritable masterpiece of chamber music, its storming sonata-esque opening movement gives way to the intense drama and unison of the main theme. Its strong emotional force builds and builds in a great wave of sound all the way through to the Gypsy/folk-tinged ending via a vigorous, almost fugue-like scherzo.
