Sydney Symphony Orchestra: Brahms String Sextet No.1 (Premiere)

Digital Season | Recorded live in the Joan Sutherland Theatre

On Demand
Genre: Classical Music

Presented in association with Sydney Symphony Orchestra

In Brahms’ First String Sextet his best qualities shine through – gorgeous melodies and a rich romantic sound.

The sextet adds an extra viola and cello to the conventional string quartet, and Brahms makes full use of the additional lower voices, allowing him to create an intricate blend of light and shade in this intimate and expressive music.

Tune in on our Facebook page to join the live chat with the musicians at 8pm on Saturday 5 September.

Lerida Delbridge, Assistant Concertmaster
Anna Skálová, Violin
Sandro Costantino, Viola
Jane Hazelwood, Viola
Umberto Clerici, Principal Cello
Elizabeth Neville, Cello
