Brahms: Quintets, Op. 34 & Op. 115
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.
Clarinet quintet in B minor, op. 15 (38:23) -- Piano quintet in F minor, op. 34 (40:45).
