Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center: The Brahms Effect
Music’s leading figurehead at the culmination of the Romantic era, Johannes Brahms remains unsurpassed in his emotional range and innovative spirit, both of which laid an inspirational groundwork for a generation of composers to come. One such composer was Hungarian Ernő Dohnányi, whose Sextet in C major owes its formative elements to Brahms. Pair this work with two Brahms trios of profound originality, and audiences will not be able to help but feel moved.
Brahms: Trio in A minor for Clarinet, Cello, and Piano, Op. 114
Brahms: Trio in E-flat major for Horn, Violin, and Piano, Op. 40
Dohnányi: Sextet in C major for Clarinet, Horn, Violin, Viola, Cello, and Piano, Op. 37
