Johannes Brahms is considered by his contemporaries and later writers as both a traditionalist and an innovator: his music is firmly rooted in the structures and compositional techniques of the Classical masters, even though within these structures is embedded a highly romantic nature, with the diligent nature of his works forming an inspiration for many subsequent composers. An exceptional pianist, he premiered many of his own works, while he also worked with some of the leading performers of his time, including virtuoso violinist Joseph Joachim, with whom he enjoyed a close friendship. It’s no surprise then that this concert features one of his many waltzes for piano (arranged for orchestra by maestro Baltas), as well as his Double Concerto for violin and cello and, to round the evening off, one of early works, the Serenade no. 1 in D major.
