Ondine ODE 1246-2
Brahms: Quintet in B minor, Op 115: I, Allegro (13:27) (version for viola & string quartet)
David Aaron Carpenter, viola; Berlin Philharmonic Quartet
The starting point for this release was an invitation David Aaron Carpenter received from the Berlin Philharmonic to perform a chamber music concert with some of their soloists in February 2013. The central item was Brahms’ Clarinet Quintet in B minor in the version for viola. The program also included Frank Bridge’s Lament for Two Violas and a solo piece by Robert Mann, Dreamtime, which gives the album its title.
