It is always a joy to welcome this legendary ensemble to the festival and we know we are in for an evening that is solely about the music, never the egos of the players. Described by the Sunday Times as “chamber music royalty” they have been delighting concert goers for over 50 years.
The ‘Trout’ will be familiar to many of our audience, the Brahms possibly less so. I first got to know this marvellous work through an ancient recording by Richter and the Borodin quartet that I purchased in 1970 and have loved it ever since.
“Is there a better-equipped, more polished, stylish, or characterful chamber music group than the Nash Ensemble anywhere on the planet? To judge from the near-immaculate account of Schubert’s Octet with which they concluded their Festival concert on Saturday, launching the Queen’s Hall morning concerts, I doubt it.” Michael Tumelty, Herald Scotland
