Music by Brahms: Barry Douglas (piano) plays the Scherzo, Op 4. Plus Elina Vahala (violin), Ruth Gibson (viola), Andres Diaz (cello) and Barry Douglas in Piano Quartet, Op 25.

John Toal introduces the last of four recitals from this year's Clandeboye Festival, recorded in the Banqueting Hall of Clandeboye Estate outside Bangor, County Down. Today's concert features pianist Barry Douglas as soloist and ensemble member.

The programme begins with Brahms's Scherzo, Op. 4 - his earliest surviving composition, written in 1851 when he was only 19 years old.

We round off this week's series with Brahms's Piano Quartet in G minor, Op 25 - a work which is orchestral in its sense of colour, scope of expression and developmental range.

Barry Douglas (piano)

Brahms: Piano Quartet in G minor Op 25
Elina Vähälä (violin); Ruth Gibson (viola); Andrés Díaz (cello); Barry Douglas (piano).
