Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (4 of 4)

Concert given by members of the Borodin Quartet. Dvorak: Miniatures for two violins and viola, Op 75a. Schubert: Des Fischers Liebesgluck, D933. Brahms: String Quartet, Op 51 No 2.

Three composers whose music is very much intertwined feature in this final selection from the concerts given by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in New York. A set of miniatures by Dvorak for three string instruments is followed by a Schubert song that has been called 'a masterpiece of hypnotic enchantment'. Brahms was hugely influenced by Schubert and in turn inspired Dvorak. His A Minor string quartet combines very personal reflection (it was composed with his violinist-friend Joachim very much in mind) with the influence of Hungarian folk-music. The performers are the members of one of Russia's most famous chamber-groups, the Borodin Quartet.
