Roderick Williams joins the Nash Ensemble in this programme of music by close friends. Dvořák’s tender Intermezzo for strings features, along with his son-in-law Josef Suk’s passionate First Piano Quartet. And we hear songs and a sunny String Quintet from Brahms, Dvořák’s energetic Viennese advocate.
