Brahms: Piano Quintet in F minor, Op 34: I, Allegro non troppo (14:50)
Jon Nakamatsu, piano; Tokyo String Quartet
The Tokyo String Quartet is joined by pianist Jon Nakamatsu and clarinetist Jon Manasse in these Brahms masterpieces dating from two very different periods in his life: the tumultuous Piano Quintet – the work of an ambitious young man – and the Clarinet Quintet, an autumnal serenade by an experienced master.
