Brahms Second Sextet is a rich, romantic and complex work which reflects the composer’s confused emotional life in the preceding years. This special performance is accompanied by readings which explore Brahms’ lifelong struggle to escape loneliness and to find love. It also features two of Brahms’ achingly beautiful songs of unrequited longing.
