J Brahms Sonata for piano and violin No.1 Op. 78 (violin)
C M von Weber Grand duo concertant Op. 48 (clarinet)
D Milhaud Suite for violin, clarinet and piano Op. 157b
We are delighted to celebrate our relationship with the largest specialist Music School in the UK, and the only one based in the north of England, by putting their rising stars of the future in the spotlight. Martyn Parkes (piano) will be the accompanist playing for Lucy Holmes (violin) and Robbie Jansen (clarinet). Their wonderfully fresh programme opens with one of Brahms’ most lyrical compositions, and is followed, in complete contrast, by a virtuoso showstopper by Weber.
They finish with an inventive work by Milhaud, which includes both the composer’s trademark Brazilian and jazz influences as intimately tuneful duet passages for violin and clarinet.
