Brahms and Dvořák were close friends who shared a deep mutual admiration. Between them, they created some of the most beautiful string quintets ever written, as these two spectacular works testify, one featuring a second viola in addition to the string quartet and the other a double bass.

With the participation of Raphaël McNabney, double bass

A concert in cocktail party format, hosted by the artists, with appetizers and one drink*

Raphaël McNabney Double bass

Raphaël McNabney was born into a family of musicians in Montréal in 1982, but only began to play the double bass at the age of 19, after studying the cello between the ages of 7 and 14 with Monique and Walter Joachim and Denis Brott.

After this five-year break, a decisive meeting with Joël Quarrington rekindled his interest in music, this time as a double bass player. He quickly began a career as a chamber musician and soloist, and in June 2007 was appointed as principal bass with Les Violons du Roy.
