If I remember correctly, it was a Brahms string sextet, (and my husband
and I had a good laugh over that!) but I am unable to remember which
one, but since there are only two, and most cds contain both of them,
do yourself a favor and get them right away. They are magnificent!
No home should be without them.
By the way, if you would like more Brahms, for instance his three string
quartets, two viola quintets, clarinet quintet, piano quintet, piano
quartets, piano trios, clarinet sonatas, horn trio,clarinet trio and did
I forget anything (?)... then I can most heartily recommend the Brilliant
Classics box of the complete chambermusic of Brahms. They are beautiful
recordings, great musicians, and you can't go wrong with any of them.
It won't set you back big bucks, either.
