The Nash Ensemble

Catalogue No: ONYX4067

After a highly acclaimed series of Brahms chamber music releases for ONYX, the Nash Ensemble turn their attention to 19th-century Russian repertoire. Glazunov’s superbly crafted String Quintet in A of 1891 is coupled with Arensky’s Second Quartet with two cellos, and Borodin’s unfinished Sextet for strings in D minor, written according to the composer in Mendelssohnian style ‘to please the Germans’ while he was in Heidelberg.
