Brahms and Strauss
- Tasmin Little violin
- John Lenehan piano
Brahms wrote one of his most lyrical and radiant chamber works during a summer break in Switzerland in 1886. The Violin Sonata No. 2, although concise, calls for great virtuosity and empathy from both participants.
Long-time duo partners Tasmin Little and John Lenehan also explore the unrestrained romanticism of Strauss’s no less demanding Violin Sonata Op. 18.
