One of the UK's leading violists, Emma Sheppard is joined by the internationally acclaimed pianist Julian Jacobson.

His last chamber works, Brahms' Op.120 sonatas are cornerstones of the viola repertoire. Magnificent craftsmanship melds with great expressive depth: by turns passionate; probing; and playful.  These works are distillations of the essence of Brahms, tinged with an autumnal nostalgia well suited to the dark hues of the viola. The works are paired with some British miniatures, each evocative and themselves an expressive distillation that shows off the viola, often referred to as “the composer’s instrument” as Mozart, Beethoven and others favoured it for their own performance.

Duration: 1 hour 15mins
