Brahmssonata in E flat Op. 120 no 2 (the 2nd viola sonata)
MartinůCello Sonata no 1 H277
Janáček Pohádka (A fairy tale)
BrahmsCello Sonata in F Op.99

After much too long an absence we are delighted to welcome the return of this finest of cello and piano duos to open our new season. Their programme juxtaposes two Brahms sonatas with masterworks of the Czech repertoire. The E flat Brahms sonata is more familiar in its original form as a clarinet sonata: but Brahms himself adapted it for viola and piano and it has been a simple step to make this splendid sonata available to cellists as well. The F major sonata is probably Brahms's finest. The two Czech works, because unfamiliar, are not programmed as often as they should be. They are each a delight to play and hear.
We share the beliefs of the performers that the programme mixes the genres "beautifully and rather provocatively"
