Notes and Editorial Reviews

The piano quintets presented on this recording illustrate that the well-established clichés of a brooding Brahms and a sanguine Dvorák are not the whole truth. Brahms also had sanguine moments as well as Dvorák let us have a look into depths. The piano duo Sivan Silver and Gil Garburg is able to show us a large spectrum of expressions, each of them performing one of the works. The Nomos Quartet perfectly harmonises with the interpretation of the pianists.
