During this performance, violist James Dunham, a faculty member at the Shepherd School of Music, makes the circle of musicians a little bigger when he joins them for Brahms’s String Quintet in G Major, Op. 111 “Prater.” For a close quartet with a difficult repertoire, adding another member, even for one work, requires some adjustments in the way they communicate and perform. Dunham has been frequently working with the Jupiter Quartet for most of the past year. “We’re having a great time,” Dunham tells us. As no doubt will the audience for this concert presented by Chamber Music Houston.
