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.
