DCD 003 - Chamber music

Our third podcast presents a variety of chamber music. The intimate nature of small ensemble performance seems a perfect match for the resources and artistic visions of independent classical labels.

At the same time, chamber music is often more challenging to record than orchestral music. As you'll hear, both sound quality and level of performance remains high through all the selections.

This program, we play the following:

Tchaikovsky (arr. Volkert): Three Pieces; 1. Allegretto vivo e scherzando - Volkert-Walther Trio
(Con Brio)

Bacewicz: String Quartet No. 4, mvt. two - Wister Quartet
(DTR Recording Company)

Mendelssohn-Henzel: Piano Quartet in A major, first movement - Renate Eggebrecht, violin; Friedemann Kupsa, cello; David Cann, viola; Staf Mickish, piano
