Brahms’ first and third string quartets, composed in the 1870s, are two contrasting works that the members of the Artemis Quartet describe as “remarkable and multi-faceted, tying a Romantic spirit with the structure and forms of Classicism, both imbued with a sense of warmth, immediacy and friendship as well as with a more spiritual, timeless beauty”.
