BRAHMS Violin Sonata No. 1 in G major, Op. 78
BRAHMS Violin Sonata No. 2 in A major, Op. 100
BRAHMS Violin Sonata No. 3 in D minor, Op. 108
The ‘Mostly Brahms’ lecture-recital series returns this year with the composer’s three violin sonatas. In the first two sonatas, although created seven years apart, Brahms had intended to create a lyrical violin that overlies other instruments. His last violin sonata, on the contrary, was infused with a stormy mood and an extra movement, deviating from the intimate settings of the previous two.
Artists Andrew Ling and Nancy Loo return to HKU in December, and will engage the audience in an intellectually stimulating discussion, analysing the music and unfolding hidden stories behind Brahms’ melodies.
