Johannes Brahms: Sonata Op. 120, No. 2 in Eb major

Associate Member of Trinity College, Rosalind Ventris, has been praised for her ‘gorgeously full-bodied’ viola playing (The Guardian). She is joined by a fellow virtuoso - the superb Welsh pianist Llŷr Williams - to perform two of Brahms’s most revered works, and intimate Romances from his lifelong colleague and confidante, Clara Schumann. Their programme takes its fire from the Hungarian folk tradition too, with a rarely heard sonata by Weiner, who was tragically murdered in the Holocaust. Alongside this is a poignant Adagio by his teacher, Kodály.

A selection of hot filter coffee, tea and cold drinks will be available for purchase in our Levine Building Cafe in advance of the event.
