Doric String Quartet

Mozart and Brahms


  • Doric String Quartet

Brahms, conscious of comparisons with Beethoven, pushed his creativity to new heights with his Op. 51 string quartets. He began Op. 51 No. 1 in the early 1850s but did not complete the work until 1873.

The Doric String Quartet prefaces the composer’s heroic score with the second of Mozart’s ‘Prussian’ quartets, a judicious blend of flowing lyricism and rhythmic high spirits.

  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
        • String Quartet in B flat major K589 'Prussian'
  • Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)
        • String Quartet in C minor Op. 51 No. 1
