Nelhybel’s Trio for Brass demonstrates the composer’s well-known skill for writing sharply incisive passagework for brass, as well as plaintive, almost Kurt Weill-like lyricism. Brahms’ magnificent Sextet for Strings, No. 2 is one of the best-loved works of all chamber music repertoire. It is inspired music – both serious and complex, but also beautiful and romantic.
