Brahms Sextet in No.2 in G Op.36
Tchaikovsky Souvenir de Florence Op.70
Take a string quartet, add a viola and a cello, and suddenly the sun shines in. There’s just something about string sextets – something warm, something songful; no wonder that when string players want to relax, this is the music they turn to!
Tonight, the Coull Quartet invite two of their greatest musical friends to celebrate the end of the season, first with the swinging tunes and deep, mellow harmonies of Brahms’s Second Sextet, and then with the unbuttoned Mediterranean fun of Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence. This is Tchaikovsky in holiday mood, and there’s no more
entertaining way for six string players to let their hair down. Come and join the party!
