Brahms – String Quintet Op.111 [1890]
Dvořák – String Quintet Op.77 [1875]

The Vanbrugh and their guests present two of the great works from the extended chamber music repertoire. Brahms’ magnificent 1890 string quintet Op.111 started life in the composer’s sketches for a fifth symphony and its final form retains an orchestral grandeur, both in structure and in texture. This is truly one of the finest works in the chamber music repertoire, exuberant, elegant, subtle, original and unmistakably Brahms. Dvořák’s Op.77 quintet, written in 1875 just as he was on the brink of worldwide stardom, adds the depth of the double bass to the instruments of the string quartet and together with Dvořák’s love of melody and rhythmic vitality, lets loose a glorious and joyful musical celebration.
