Past Performance Schedule - 2007

Sunday, January 28 at 3 p.m.
The Voice of the Violin - Brahms on the Bluff

Lyrical and intense, the three violin-piano duo sonatas have long taken their place as the undisputed classics of the genre. The Four Piano Pieces, op. 119, Brahms's final work for the piano, are, in turn, introspective, nostalgic, playful and passionate.

Sunday, February 25 at 3 p.m.

“Dual-ing” Pianos - Brahms on the Bluff

Brahms simultaneously composed two versions of the Variations on a Theme of Haydn, one for orchestra and one for two pianos (op. 56B), performed for this concert, while the Two-piano Sonata, op. 34B, is an earlier incarnation of the Piano Quintet. Written just months after his mother’s death, the Horn Trio, op. 40, uses an unusual combination of French horn, violin and piano, helping to create a moving memorial.

Sunday, October 7 at 3 p.m.
Party of Five - Brahms on the Bluff

Brahms’s mellow String Quartet no. 3 in B-Flat major, op. 67, and the exquisite, but rarely heard, Variations on a Theme of Schumann for Piano, op. 9, set the stage for the powerhouse Piano Quintet in F Minor, op. 34, a dark masterpiece.
