Alexander Melnikov piano; Cuarteto Casals

Haydn, Prokofiev and Brahms


  • Alexander Melnikov piano
  • Cuarteto Casals

The Russian pianist offers Prokofiev’s wispy but characterful collection of 20 miniature ‘fleeting visions’, written between 1915 and 1917, before joining Cuarteto Casals in Brahms’s grandly impassioned piano quintet, a cornerstone of the Romantic chamber repertory.
