BRAHMS  Quintet for Piano and Strings in F minor, Op. 34

JESSICA HUNG violin
KIRSTIN GREENLAW violin
SHERIDAN CURRIE viola
JONATHAN LEE cello
JOSHUA NEMITH piano

The Dayton Philharmonic Principal String Quartet and DPO Principal Keyboard Joshua Nemith join forces to perform Brahms’ great Piano Quintet in F minor. Known as “the crown of chamber music,” it is a stormy work full of angst and emotional turbulence in the three faster movements, while the slow movement, marked “Andante (walking pace),” provides a calm, lyrical respite from the work’s general intensity.
