Lawrence Power concludes his first year as Turner Sims Associate Artist with an evening of emotive 19th-century chamber music by Brahms, presented on the composer’s birth date. He performs Brahms’ viola and violin sonatas with Russian pianist Pavel Kolesnikov, making his second appearance of the season, and who in 2012 won one of the world’s most prestigious piano prizes, the Honens International Piano Competition.
Brahms loved the sonorous sounds of the viola, and shortly after submitting a series of clarinet sonatas to his publisher, he offered versions written for viola to be published at the same time. The composer’s three violin sonatas, written between 1878 and 1886, are seductively lyrical, from the G major with its famous ‘raindrop’ final movement to the complex, eerie D minor.
