Brahms Festival:
Variations on a Theme by Haydn, opus 56
Double Concerto for Violin and Cello, opus 102

soloists: Claire Sterling and Robin Michael
Symphony No 2 in D major, opus 73

Scottish born 'cellist Robin Michael appeared with us last season in a superb pair of performances (both here and in Linlithgow) of Dvořák's beautiful concerto; a return invitation was immediate! This time he is joined by Claire Sterling in a husband and wife collaboration performing the Brahms Double Concerto. Harmony of every variety is sure to reign! The Second Symphony is the sunniest of the four, and contrasts perfectly with the autumnal concerto. Our Brahms Festival—and season—concludes with his Variations on a Theme by Haydn.
