BRAHMS

Quintets Op. 34 & 115

Jon Nakamatsu [piano]

Jon Manasse [clarinet]

Tokyo String Quartet

The Tokyo String Quartet is joined by pianist jon Nakamatsu and clarinetist Jon Manasse in these Brahms masterpieces dating from two very different periods in his life: the tumultuous Piano Quintet, Op.34 - the work of an ambitious young man - and the Clarinet Quintet Op.115, an autumnal serenade by an experienced master. The journey between these two milestones was one marked by criticism, soul searching and ultimate triumph.

"As players come and go, the sound and style of a string quartet inevitably change. That has happened to the Tokyo String Quartet as much as any, but it is impressive how little the quality of the playing has wavered, as their Wigmore Hall appearance on Monday showed. ...It was with Brahms's Piano Quintet, though, that the Tokyo players came into their own... by the halfway mark these players were scorching the earth behind them as a rich-toned Andante led on to a blistering Scherzo and a finale of powerful momentum" Richard Fairman, The Financial Times

the ensemble has retained its refined sound and impeccable standards.” David Denton, The Strad, December 2011
