Described by Sir Donald Tovey described as “the most ethereal of Brahms’ larger works,” the second Sextet in G major is a major chamber music event.. In this rare performance it is brought to life by musicians of Melbourne Chamber Orchestra, with Strauss’ atmospheric Sextet from his opera Capriccio.
