Join us for an exclusive online broadcast by the acclaimed Dudok Quartet, presented for Turner Sims from the group’s home city of Amsterdam. Two significant chamber works by Brahms are the central features of the concert, including one of the first string quartets he wrote, at the age of 40, with its wonderful melodies, and exuberant dance movement finale infused with Hungarian folk rhythms. Hungary is also the focus for the final work in the programme, an arrangement of music by one of the country’s leading cimbalom players, Kálmán Balogh. Preceding this the Quartet are joined by viola player Lilli Maijala to perform Brahms’ second String Quintet. His last chamber work for strings alone, it was conceived and completed in 1890 whilst Brahms was staying in one his favourite summer destinations, the Austrian spa town of Bad Ischl.
