Brahms: Piano Quintet in F minor, Op 34 (45:01)
Menahem Pressler, piano; Pacifica Quartet
The Grammy Award-winning Pacifica Quartet joins forces with legendary pianist Menahem Pressler of the Beaux Arts Trio for Brahms’ Piano Quintet, a pillar of German Romanticism. While Pressler has performed the work for the past 50 years, this is his first recording of it. The album also offers Schumann’s String Quartet in A Minor, Op 41 No 1, which the Pacifica has been performing since early in its career.
