Sir Donald Tovey: Chamber Music, Volume Two

The exploration of Sir Donald Tovey’s music on Toccata Classics continues apace with two highly contrasted works: the bright, Classically oriented Variations on a Theme by Gluck, Op. 28, for flute and string quartet written in 1913 and the Piano Quintet from thirteen years earlier – an expansive, Brahmsian work of symphonic scale: it is almost an hour in length.
