Nash Ensemble

Vaughan Williams and Dvořák

Archived

  • Nash Ensemble Chamber Ensemble in Residence

The return of Vaughan Williams’s early chamber music to performance – largely through the activities of the Nash – brought to an end a near century ban on performance. It precedes many of the familiar RVW fingerprints, but all is well made and has a cherished poetry all of its own. Notable among these is the Quintet for piano, clarinet, horn and strings, hinting at the way his music would go. It is paired with Dvorák’s well loved and exhilarating Piano Quintet of 1887.

  • Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958)
        • Quintet in D major
  • Antonín Dvořák (1841-1904)
        • Piano Quintet No. 2 in A major Op. 81
