It’s the musical equivalent of splitting the atom – the way just four players can unlock some of the most powerful emotions you’ll ever feel in a concert hall. Brahms poured his darkest feelings into his C minor Piano Quartet; the result is a musical tragedy as stirring as Shakespeare. Schumann went to the opposite extreme: he was in love and his Piano Quartet practically boils over with happiness. And Gustav Mahler – well, let’s just say that he never holds back!

After the concert, there will be a reception for the whole audience to celebrate the launch of The Cumnock Tryst Music Club.
