These two string quintets by Mendelssohn and Brahms are every string player’s dream to play. The richness and warmth of the two-viola quintet medium is fully exploited by both of these masters and to have some of Australia’s most sought-after chamber musicians – who also happen to be great friends -coming together to play these is a scheduling miracle presenting the opportunity for extraordinary performances.
