Brahms String Sextet No. 1 in B-flat major, Op. 18

Duration: approximately 1 hr (with no intermission)

The T’ang Quartet, Singapore’s most renowned string quartet, joins musicians of the SSO in a concert of string masterpieces. The string sextet from Richard Strauss’s last opera, Capriccio, is a deliberate throwback to the luscious soundscapes of the late-Romantic. But it was written in 1941, sixteen years after the dark wanderings of Shostakovich’s Prelude and Scherzo, when the Russian master was just 18. Brahms’s String Sextet No. 1 too is a work from his youth, its heady beauty a thoughtful contrast to these two 20th century works.
