Leif Ove Andsnes, Christian Tetzlaff, Tabea Zimmerman and Clemens Hagen: The Brahms Piano Quartets

When: Thu., April 7, 7:30 p.m. 2016

Johannes Brahms’s three piano quartets are relatively youthful works. The first two, written in 1861, are nicely matched. The first is ambiguous and searching, with bursting melodies and brooding textures. The stately second is never in a hurry during its fifty minutes. The final quartet, written in 1875, splits the difference, with themes bounding between major and minor modes at will and pointing toward the complexity of his later music. —Dan Ruccia
