Description
Having honed their musicianship for four decades, the Nash Ensemble are well deserving of accolades such as The Royal Philharmonic Society's Small Ensemble Award "for the breadth of its taste and its immaculate performance of a wide range of music." Their accounts of Brahms' String Sextets Nos. 1 and 2 were Gramophone Editor's Choice selections, and the Sunday Times called their versions of the Piano Quartets "terrific, clear-sighted yet impassioned." Also in this collection are the Clarinet Trio, Op. 114, and the String Quintets, Opp. 88 and 111.

"With its glorious opening subject, Brahms's Op. 88 String Quintet seems at first like one of his sunniest and sheerly lyrical works, but it is full of elegiac half-lights prompted by the act of memory…. The Nash Ensemble players, in this splendid new disc, are well aware of the emotional complexities here…. One of the glories of their performances of both quintets is the fullness and the richness of sound, something Brahms clearly strove to cultivate in his scoring. Paul Watkins's heroic, thrusting statement of the cello theme at the outset of the op. 111 quintet reminds us that this opening started as a sketch for a symphony, and the theme was probably originally intended for horns. The range of texture, both virile and mystical, that Brahms conjures in this movement is astonishing, and I've seldom heard a performance that differentiates and brings them all out so well as this one."—BBC Music
