Four Piano Pieces, Op 119
Piano Quintet in F minor Op 34


Piano

“The quintet is beautiful beyond measure”, conductor Hermann Levi told Brahms after he had rewritten the Piano Quintet from its earlier string quintet and piano duo incarnations. It is a heroic work on a grand scale and the Maxwell Quartet, hotfoot from their morning concert, team up with Danny Driver for a wonderful afternoon of Brahms, beginning with his elegiac late Intermezzi for solo piano.

'This quartet goes to the very heart of what chamber music is'

Stavanger Aftenblad

'[Driver’s] poise, focus and imagination… this is playing of a most perceptive order'

The Telegraph

Dirleton Kirk, Dirleton

Dirleton is one of the most picturesque of East Lothian's many beautiful villages, and its church, Dirleton Kirk, dedicated to St Andrew, is a real gem.

Built in 1612 to replace the parish church along the coast at Gullane which was continually being inundated by sand, this long, low-eaved church with its square, gothic-topped tower is built of warm pink sandstone.

Its striking Archerfield Aisle (1664) is Scotland's earliest example of neo-classical architecture. Inside, the mellow light filters through some especially fine stained glass.
