Fontane e pini a Villa Carlotta

You are invited to a full immersion in the most intimate side of Brahms’ music— his vocal quartets with piano-duet accompaniment, to be sung at home, among friends, and with a glass in everybody’s hand. This aspect of his musical world is perhaps less explored in concert programs than his great symphonic and instrumental chamber works are, yet it is no less authentic and sincere.
