Dvořák String Sextet

Please note this concert will finish at approximately 9.30pm and will have an interval. 

I adore both the sextets we are playing this evening, but I have always been particularly enchanted by Brahms’ second sextet in G Major. The mystery of the opening with the undulating semitones in the viola and tonal ambiguity creates a special intimate atmosphere which immediately draws the listener in. Although written in G major, I can’t help but notice an underlying sadness in the music. It is such a privilege to have the chance to play this piece in Leeds with such wonderful musicians and friends – I can’t wait to share it with the audience there! – Vashti Hunter
