About This Performance

This concert is supported by Dilys Winegrad, in memory of Saul Winegrad

Three premier musicians unite to perform a trio of seminal works by Brahms. The opening Violin Sonata in G Major is an extraordinary masterpiece that occupies its own rarefied world of elegant construction, romantic sweep, and exquisite beauty while the concluding Trio masterfully juxtaposes music of turbulence and despair with passages of luxurious warmth and optimism.

Brahms: Violin Sonata in G Major, Op. 78, No. 1
Brahms: Cello Sonata in E Minor, Op. 38
Brahms: Piano Trio in B Major, Op. 8
