Johannes Brahms: Sonata For Clarinet And Piano No.1 In F Minor Op. 120 With H. Ferreira On Clarinet & D. Bekker On Piano
A battle between woodwind and keyboard
While he spent most of his time in Vienna, German composer Johannes Brahms’ work is influenced by many years of travel and study of folk music from around the world. In particular, it is said he is influenced by Scottish folk music. This work is emblematic of that with some “scotch snaps” and uses pentatonic scales. Picture yourself hiking through a Scottish Glen to best appreciate this work!
