ST. PAUL, Minn. — Hailed for their rigorous approach to music making and their fluid elegance, the Diotima Quartet performed one of the most autumnal-sounding works by Brahms earlier this year as guest artists with the Chamber Music Society of St. Cloud, Minn.

The Brahms' String Quartet No 2 in the Diotima's hands is dark and glowing. It's a pleasure to bring you their performance in this week's Regional Spotlight.
