Carducci Quartet

Martin Roscoe (piano)

Webern: Langsamer Satz

Webern: Six Bagatelles and String Quartet op. 28

Brahms: Piano Quintet op. 35

Webern’s music, like Brahms’s, reflects a conflict between the intellectual rigour of his composition and its emotional impact — they are very much kindred spirits in this regard. Webern’s Langsamer Satz will surprise listeners who only know of him as one of the three standard-bearers of the Second Viennese School in the 20th century. It is an intensely romantic work, not published after his death and a world away from the work he is most known for, such as his String Quartet op. 28.  With the advice of his friends Clara Schumann and Joseph Joachim, Brahms wrote and rewrote the piece which became the piano quintet we know today. Joachim declared that it was the finest new chamber music work published since Schubert. A dark, mighty work of tremendous scope, it is generally considered to be Brahms’s great chamber music epic completed when he was only thirty-one.
