Genre : Classical
Description : Brahms String Sextet No. 1 Op. 18 | @Sydney Symphony Orchestra | Digital Season

Presented in association with @Sydney Symphony Orchestra

In Brahms’ First String Sextet his best qualities shine through – gorgeous melodies and a rich romantic sound.

The sextet adds an extra viola and cello to the conventional string quartet, and Brahms makes full use of the additional lower voices, allowing him to create an intricate blend of light and shade in this intimate and expressive music.

The String Sextet No. 1 in B? major, Op. 18, was composed in 1860 by Johannes Brahms and premiered in Hanover by an ensemble led by Joseph Joachim. It was published in 1862 by the firm of Fritz Simrock.

This sextet was used as soundtrack by French director Louis Malle in the movie "The Lovers" ("Les Amants", 1958). The sextet's second movement is featured in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Sarek". The second movement is also featured in "The Day of the Dead", an episode of Inspector Morse, and in the 2001 French-Austrian film The Piano Teacher.
