For the fourth of the lunchtime concerts at St John’s, two rising international stars of the piano - who have played together for the last decade - perform some of Brahms’ most bewitching solos and duets for four hands.
The popular Valses/Waltzes, a tribute to his adopted city of Vienna, contain some of the composer’s best-known melodies, while the Variations on a Theme of Handel is a masterpiece that stands shoulder to shoulder with Bach’s Goldberg Variations.
Variations on a Theme of Handel Op. 24
Valses Op. 39
Variations on a Theme of Schumann Op. 23
