Brahms: Sextet No. 1 in B-flat Major, Op. 18
Our faculty member, Paul Murphy, provides the current music selection: the Brahms Sextet No. 1 in B-flat major, Op. 18. He likes the recording by the Amadeus Quartet, but notes that it is part of a set of most of Brahms chamber music and that you cannot buy just the recording of the Sextet without buying the whole set. (Paul also says, by the way, that it is a really wonderful set.) For a link to iTunes, click here. Two other recordings are also recommended: a historic one with Isaac Stern and Pablo Casals and another one with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble. Enjoy!
