Belcea Quartet

The Belcea Quartet is not only one of the most renowned string quartets in the world, it also performs time and again with other top ensembles and musicians who are otherwise better known as soloists, such as Jean-Guihen Queyras and Tabea Zimmermann. Together, this results in two violins, two violas and two cellos at an outstanding level, which Alpha Classics captured in an award-winning recording with the two string sextets by Johannes Brahms. This fortunate constellation is a gem, not least because the publication of Sextet No. 1 in 1862 was the first broad success for Brahms and began to establish his reputation as a master of chamber music.
