Catalogue No: ONYX4019

This is the third release on ONYX from “Britain’s premier chamber ensemble” (The Times)
 
It's a very generous 77 minute coupling containing both of Brahms superb String Sextets with regular Nash players joined by star guests Philip Dukes and Tim Hugh
 
The String Sextets are two of Brahms’ finest, most warm-hearted and romantic chamber works. Unusually, all repeats are observed in these performances, recorded at Champs Hill, Sussex in December 2006
 
The Nash Ensemble, having recently celebrated their 40th Anniversary, are having something of a golden period, and their previous ONYX discs of Turnage world premieres (ONYX4005) and Mendelssohn Piano Trios (ONYX4011) have received rave reviews.
