Schumann’s Piano Quartet offers moments of great ferocity, precise counterpoint and rapturous piano passages. Brahms’ lyrical String Sextet No.2, with its secret coded reference to the soprano Agathe von Siebold, is a meditation on lost love, its hints of sadness and yearning evolving into a stirring, optimistic finale.
