Barry Douglas and the Carducci Quartet

Shostakovich Piano Quintet in G minor, Op. 37
Brahms Piano Quintet in F minor, Op. 34

Carducci Quartet
Barry Douglas piano

When the power of a solo piano meets the force of a string quartet, the results are truly irresistible. In the atmospheric surroundings of the University Church of St Mary, Barry Douglas and the Carducci Quartet present two of the greatest piano quintets in the repertoire. After Shostakovich in unusually carefree and charming mode comes Brahms’s great chamber music epic. A sense of adventure is hard-wired into the German composer’s F minor Piano Quintet, a work of many faces and tremendous scope, filled with the composer’s characteristic rhythmic verve and thematic sweep.
