Chamber music with Kavakos
violin Leonidas Kavakos | viola Roman Spitzer | cello Emanuele Silvestri | piano Lahav Shani
including Brahms Piano Quartet No. 1
Leonidas Kavakos has warm feelings for the chamber music of Brahms. ‘Brahms can ramp up the drama to a high level, then from one moment to the next comes up with something of perfect simplicity. A lullaby, a caress, so tender that it makes you smile.’ Add a dash of unbridled zest for life and you have all the ingredients of Brahms' enchanting First Piano Quartet.
