 Six and Four Delight! April 24, 2014 By bess holloway (Boulder, CO) See All My Reviews "I'm partial to any chamber work that is performed with double bass in the ensemble as it is here in the Piano Sextet, Op. 110. The Piano Quartet No. 1 was written when the composer was just 13, so it is significant as a beginning marker in his career. Enjoy!" Report Abuse
