What greater delight could a chamber music lover wish for, other than Mozart and Brahms works for the uncommon genre of string quintet, composed at the peak of the two composers’ musical maturity? The C major Quintet K. 515 (1787), one of the four string quintets that Mozart wrote during the last years of his life, is a sublime, breathtaking work with depth and drama. Brahms’ G major string quintet op. 111 (1890) is an ebullient work characterised by an equally amazing broadness of conception. As Brahms’ friend Theodor Billroth aptly expressed after listening to it: “I have often reflected on the subject of what happiness is for humanity. Well, today, in listening to your music, that was happiness.”
