The addition of a second viola to the standard string quartet formation adds a wonderfully rich sonority to the two major works in the Van Kuijk Quartet’s second Cheltenham outing. Mozart’s ambitious opening movement inspired Schubert’s great two-cello Quintet, while the piece that Brahms intended to be his final work features the composer’s favourite stringed instrument in a glorious viola duet slow movement. The viola’s versatility is further demonstrated in three exhilarating solo miniatures by Norwegian violist Eivind Holtsmark Ringstad.
