      Brahms: String Quartet No 1 in C minor, Op 51 No 1 (34:04)

      Chiara String Quartet

      The Chiara Quartet recorded all of Brahms’ string quartets on this album entirely from memory, without any printed sheet music. It was a tremendous task, but the Quartet feels it has brought the group to a new level of performance and cohesion. After spending countless hours working toward playing from memory, they now see sheet music as a distraction, instead of an aid – so much so that they have made the decision to perform nearly all of their repertoire from memory in concert as well.
