Brahms struggled for years to create his First String Quartet, and the result is pure passion: the stormy, poetic sound of a great artist distilling emotion into beauty. It’s the perfect showcase for Quatuor Agate – the multi-award-winning young French ensemble, hailed by critics for their “dramatic, revelatory” performances. First, though, a taste of Mediterranean sunlight from the 18th century composer Luigi Boccherini.
