Lunchtime Concert: Brahms Piano Quartet No1
Nicolai Overture to The Merry Wives of Windsor
Brahms (orch Schoenberg) Piano Quartet No1
Junping Qian Conductor
Nicolai’s Overture to The Merry Wives of Windsor begins with the moon rising over Windsor Great Park. Brahms’ First Piano Quartet ends with the wildest and most unbridled of all gypsy dances – at least, in this flamboyant orchestral version. Although technically not a symphony, this symphonic masterpiece is the perfect soundbite for a light lunch.
