2019 - Brahms & Tovey Trios

Anneke Scott (horns),
Robin Wilson (violin) and
Neal Peres da Costa (piano)

 

Bringing together three leading international experts on Brahms Performance Practice, the 2019 Brahms & Tovey Trio tour of the UK will include performances, masterclasses, seminars and workshops exploring the most current research into late 19th century performance practice.

The programmes partner one of Johannes Brahms's greatest chamber works, the Op. 40 "Horn Trio" with a work by the British composer Donald Tovey. Tovey, mostly known today for his writings on musical analysis, was a great friend of, and musical collaborator with the violinist Joseph Joachim, a musician whose works will also be included in this project.
