Close contemporaries, Gustav Mahler and and Cécile Chaminade had somewhat different careers as composers. Mahler composed little chamber music – the one movement of a piano quartet featured in this concert is his only surviving purely instrumental chamber work , whilst Chaminade wrote a vast number of works in a range of smaller forms; both, however, furthered the song repertoire of their time.

Johannes Brahms made immensely significant contributions to the chamber music repertoire, one of the most important of which is his Piano Quintet. As a composer whose works looked both backward and forward, Brahms bridged generations of musical experience.
