Nash Ensemble at Bath Mozartfest

Live from the Assembly Rooms in Bath.

Presented by Martin Handley.

The Nash Ensemble bring a Bohemian flavour to the first part of their Bath Mozartfest programme with Haydn's Gypsy-inspired Piano Trio and the Slavic sounds of Dvorak's first overtly nationalist chamber piece. Then, Borodin's early and tantalisingly incomplete Sextet provides an overture to the angst-ridden Third Piano Quartet by Brahms - surely a portrait of the young composer in the throes of his greatest love affair.

Haydn: Piano Trio in G major 'Gypsy Rondo'.
Dvorak: String Sextet in A major.

8.25 Interval Music.

Borodin: String Sextet in D minor.
Brahms: Piano Quartet No.3 in C minor.

Nash Ensemble: Ian Brown (piano), Stephanie Gonley (violin), Laura Samuel (violin), Lawrence Power (viola), Philip Dukes (viola), Paul Watkins (cello), Pierre Doumenge (cello).
