For Brahms-Lovers Only
All one or two of you, follow this link to hear the last two movements of the Op. 25 Piano Quartet in G minor played by the superstar ensemble Opus One. I heard the performance on the radio this morning, and was absolutely astonished by it. This is a piece I know and love, and I've never heard it played with this kind of organic blossoming of tempi and complete integrity among all the voices. It sounds as if they're composing as they go -- incredibly exciting.
