It’s almost the end of the week, so unwind the way string players do – with the long smiling melodies and freewheeling humour of Brahms’s First String Sextet.

As lovely to listen to as it is to play, chamber music simply doesn’t get more summery or songful. Six of the CBSO’s string players share the pleasure this afternoon: it’ll send you home smiling.
