Quote from: kyjo on March 03, 2023, 08:06:45 PMIf only the first movement of the String Quintet no. 2 in G major survived from Brahms' output, it would be enough for me to consider him a great composer. An absolutely remarkable tour-de-force of a movement, full of textural and rhythmic complexity, unbounded energy, and heartfelt melodies. The other movements of the piece are fine, but they have a hard time living up to that magnificent opening movement IMO.

Wow! It's by far my favorite Casella. Totally incredible. Would love to see this live. And the BBC bass drum has great oomph at the end.
