Johannes Brahms: The Complete Works for Violin and Piano
Victoria Martino, violin; James Lent, piano


Friday, March 6, 2015, 7:30 PM
$30 members, $35 nonmembers

Join Victoria Martino and James Lent in an inspiring and impassioned performance of Johannes Brahms’ beloved compositions for violin and piano, including the three canonical sonatas in G major, A major, and D minor, the fiery C-minor Scherzo from the "F-A-E" Sonata, and the composer’s own, rarely heard transcriptions of the two clarinet/viola sonatas in F minor and E-flat major.

This concert is the final installment in a three-concert series by Victoria Martino and James Lent, exploring the development of music from the pre-classical to the romantic styles. The first concert in this series, on November 12, 2014, celebrates the 300th birthday of Gluck and C.P.E. Bach, musical mentors of Mozart, and greatly admired by Brahms. In fact, Brahms arranged orchestral works by Gluck for the pianoforte, and was the editor of C.P.E. Bach’s keyboard compositions. Brahms engaged in a lifelong study of Mozart’s music, avidly collecting the composer’s manuscripts, and editing certain works, such as the Requiem.
