The amazing story behind Brahms' Piano Quintet in F minor is the thing of screenplays. Tonight you'll experience the astonishing work featuring five of North Central Ohio's finest musicians. What must Brahms have thought when he delivered the piece as a piano duet to Clara Schumann only to receive it back with this note: "the work is splendid, but it cannot be called a sonata. Rather it is a work so full of ideas that it requires an orchestra for its interpretation. So please remodel it once more!" Remodel it once more he did, turning it into a tour de force worthy of the forbidden love for which he and the music were lusting.
