Frank Bridge’s most famous student Benjamin Britten described this quartet as: ‘Sonorous yet lucid, with clear, clean lines, grateful to listen to and to play. Brahms happily tempered with Fauré.’ Sculthorpe’s ‘Landscape II’ for piano quartet is influenced by Japanese music, the Balinese gamelan and Australian Aboriginal chant.

The natural world is ever-present, especially through the sounds of insects and the occasional cries of birds. Brahms’ monumental A major quartet is a poised and lyrical work, laid out on a broad and symphonic scale; its ‘heavenly length’ and extended melodic ideas are reminiscent of the music of Schubert.

FRANK BRIDGE - Phantasy Piano Quartet, H. 94


JOHANNES BRAHMS - Piano Quartet No. 2 in A major, Op. 26


Emily Sun - Violin

Tobias Breider - Viola

Umberto Clerici - Cello

Daniel de Borah - Piano

"This was an elegant performance, with a beautiful sense of Classical style: the explosive passions always constrained by the form. The piano is the lynchpin of the ensemble in this work, and de Borah executed all the challenges with seeming ease and remarkable clarity."
