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
