Nash Ensemble; Christine Rice mezzo-soprano

Schumann, Wagner and Brahms


  • Nash Ensemble
  • Christine Rice mezzo-soprano

Exploring some delightful discoveries, the Nash open with a bold work by Schumann scored for an unusual combination of forces, followed by a Wagner song cycle written at the same time as Tristan and Isolde – here sung by the in-demand mezzo Christine Rice. The concert ends with the more familiar territory of Brahms’s extravert G minor quartet for piano and strings, with its gypsy style finale.

BBC Radio 3 will broadcast this concert on Monday 26 November at 7.30pm and it will be available on the BBC iPlayer Radio for 30 days
