Savannah Music Festival LIVE 547 – Schumann & Brahms
The Romantic Period contains numerous chamber music masterworks by both Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms. Though he was born 23 years after Schumann, Brahms began to compose early in his life, and it was through the violinist Joseph Joachim that he was introduced to Schumann. In this episode, we listen to Daniel Hope & Friends play the Grand Sonata in D minor for violin and piano, Op. 121 by Schumann, featuring Italian violinist Lorenza Borrani. That piece is followed by Brahm’s Trio for piano, violin and viola in E-Flat Major, Op. 40, performed at the 2012 Savannah Music Festival by pianist Simon Crawford-Phillips, violinist Lorenza Borrani and violist Carla Maria Rodrigues.
