In “Songs, Dances, and Romances,” violin, viola and cello each take a turn in the spotlight, then all join together for a powerful Piano Quartet by Brahms. Clara Schumann’s Three Romances, lush and poignant, are followed by a set of Spanish folk songs that all deal with the theme of love and courtship. A passionately expressive movement of a Robert Schumann violin sonata makes for an intriguing pairing with a virtuosic Rondo by Sicong Ma, known in China as “King of the Violinists.” Clara Schumann herself played the piano part in the 1861 premiere of Brahms’s captivating G minor Piano Quartet, with its famously rip-roaring “Gypsy rondo” finale.
