Piano Quintet in F minor, Op. 34
Brahms is a central figure in the 19th Century Romantic era. Hailed as one of the greatest chamber music written by Brahms, it was originally written as a string quintet with two cellos, metamorphosing into a sonata for two pianos before its final transformation into this Piano Quintet. This piece is more adventurous than Brahm’s usual style and the contrast between the lilt of the strings and the reverberation of the piano creates an unsettling sound. So join us this evening as Singaporean-born pianist Melvyn Tan, together with the T’ang Quartet present to you a dark and almighty work of Brahms.
