The inimitable Nash Ensemble celebrate two of the most tuneful chamber music composers of their time, Bruch and Vaughan William – and their little-known connection.

In 1897 the young Englishman Ralph Vaughan Williams spent an enjoyable few months in Berlin studying with the renowned German composer Max Bruch. 'Bruch encouraged me,' Vaughan Williams recalled, 'and I had never had much encouragement before.' Bruch’s official testimonial for Vaughan Williams calls him 'a very good musician and a talented composer'; Vaughan Williams also remembered Bruch appreciating his 've-ry o-riginaal ideeas' – though not his harmonies, which were 'rather too originell'. Hearing their music together, the delightful surprise is discovering how much they had in common.
