Johannes Brahms – Piano Quartet No. 2 in A major, Op. 26

Throughout music history, folk music has been a significant source of inspiration for composers. Chopin composed over a dozen waltzes but also honored his Polish heritage by drawing upon the dance of the Mazurka in almost 60 individual pieces. Georges Enescu was one of the great violinists of the early 20th century and his third violin sonata gloriously captures the music of the Romani people. The concert concludes with the symphonic Piano Quartet in A major by Brahms, which includes numerous examples of Hungarian-inspired melodies that has made the work an audience favorite.

There will be an interactive question & answer session with the artists immediately following this performance.
