Brahms’s Sonata Op.120 No.1 combines profound beauty with some of the most impassioned music he ever wrote. The remarkable young British viola player Timothy Ridout has placed it at the start of this lovely Saffron Hall recital; a perfect vehicle for “the warmth and eloquence of his tone” The Strad and a wonderful contrast to song transcriptions by Lionel Tertis and Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet.
This concert will finish at 3pm and there will not be an interval.
