For their third and final concert, the Piatti String Quartet play Brahms’ Quartet No.3. It is the most relaxed and cheerful of his three quartets, with a first movement in hunting style and a typically Brahmsian intermezzo with a hint of the waltz.

This is paired with one of Beethoven’s greatest string quartets, the massive op.130. This is in six movements, embracing a great range of expression and emotion, and concluding with the ‘Great Fugue’, a substantial and highly dramatic finale. These two string quartets will form a powerful conclusion to the Piatti quartet’s series of concerts.
