LSO St Luke's

BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert: Nash Ensemble

Thu 9 Feb 2012 1pm - Jerwood Hall, LSO St Luke's, London

Overview

Nash Ensemble

Nash Ensemble

STRAUSS Prelude to 'Capriccio'
BRAHMS String Sextet in B-flat major

The Nash Ensemble:
Stephanie Gonley
violin
Laura Samuel violin
Lawrence Power viola
Scott Dickinson viola
Paul Watkins cello
Tim Hugh cello

The Prelude to Strauss’ Capriccio, an opera about opera, stages the composer’s preoccupation with the theme of words versus music and which Strauss himself called a ‘second Rosenkavalier without the longueurs’. As the immediate despair Brahms felt at the death of friend and fellow composer Robert Schumann subsided, his String Sextet shows a refreshing sense of light and optimism.
