When a fresh, unconventional string quartet combines with an expressive musician par excellence, incomparable interpretations often emerge. The Amaryllis Quartet and pianist Matthias Kirschnereit have entered into this alliance for Brahms' piano quintet opus 34 and Dvorák's piano quintet opus 81. Johannes Brahms' quintet is the focus of their new CD "Frei aber einsam" ("Free but lonely"), about which Werner Theurich writes online for Spiegel: "...because the Amaryllis Quartet, experienced in Romanticism, can be just as hands-on as they can be filigree. Together with Matthias Kirschnereit they read this Anna Karenina of chamber music with great verve and surprising swing.

A great, tragic story, told in a very stirring way: Chamber music for the new Brahms falling in love". Antonin Dvorák, who takes Brahms as his model with his work and even quotes him, created a quintet that today is one of the composer's most frequently played works. With its exuberant sound, Czech influences and popularity, it represents Dvorák's chamber music par excellence. A steep template for the Amaryllis Quartet with its flawless technique and Matthias Kirschnereit, who cultivates the most beautiful approach to music imaginable.
