A heart-rending programme of love and loss, combining the rich sonority of cello and bass-baritone voice. Soulful and spiritual, prayerful and passionate, this lunchtime concert opens our Holy Week Festival with two late works: Beethoven's visionary 'Free Sonata' and one of the very last things Brahms wrote.
Beethoven: Sonata No 4 for cello and piano
Brahms: Four Serious Songs
Bloch: From Jewish Life
Vaughan Williams: Love Bade Me Welcome
Duration: approximately 50 minutes
