Brahms By Renaud Capuçon And Nicholas Angelich At The Philharmonie de Paris

An exposé of the German Romantic composer

Grande Salle Pierre Boulez, Philharmonie 1, Paris

One of the “Three Bs” of music (along with Beethoven and Bach), it’s hard to underestimate the importance of Brahms’ work for the Romantic era and for music itself. This concert features four works from throughout the composer's life, showing how he matured in his creative ability. All the works are performed by violinist Renaud Capuçon and pianist Nicholas Angelich, who are world-class performers of romantic, classical and baroque music. 

The concert begins with the Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 1 in G Major Op. 78, followed by Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 2 in Major Op. 100 “Thun”. Third is F.A.E Sonata for violin and piano (written in collaboration with Robert Schumann and his pupil, Albert Dietrich). The concert comes to an end with the final notes of Brahms’ Sonata for violin and piano No. 3 in D minor Op. 108. See snapshots of Brahms’ life through this concert.
