During a concert tour in 1853 young Johannes Brahms was introduced to the couple Robert and Clara Schumann. They struck up a friendship for life, and the favourable criticism of the influential Schumann was instrumental in putting Brahms on the map as a composer. Amie d’AMUZ Claire Chevallier will bring some talented soloists along for a concert of intimate chamber music by the two soul mates. You will hear Drei Fantasiestücke für Klarinette und Klavier completed by Schumann in just two days. The sudden changes of mood in these ‘wordless songs’ reflect the deeply romantic character of the composer. Included is also Brahms’ fabulous first cello sonata, a work conceived as a homage to Bach, referring thematically to Die Kunst der Fuge. To cap it all, Brahms’ Trio für Klarinette, Violoncello und Klavier will offer a supreme example of Brahms’ late chamber music, subdued and intense.
