BRAHMS - Piano Quartet in C minor Op 60
Mahler's early Piano Quartet Movement, his only surviving piece of chamber music, is full of glimpses of the future composer. Mozart's G minor Quartet begins with taut drama and ends with a sunny rondo whilst Brahms' C minor Quartet, inspired by his youthful love for Clara Schumann, is the epitome of Romantic 'storm and stress'.
