Beethoven Piano Sonata No 28 in A Op.101 15’
Bach Cello Suite No 2 in D minor BWV 1008 20’
Simon Holt Escaramuza for clarinet and piano (premiere) 8’
Brahms Clarinet Trio in A minor Op.114 25’

The second of our New Generation Artists series gives each of these outstanding young musicians a chance to demonstrate their individual talents before coming together to perform Brahms’ much-loved Clarinet Trio – a later work in which, as a friend wrote to the composer, ‘it is as though the instruments were in love with each other’. The first of Beethoven’s late-period sonatas opens the concert, a perfect showcase for a pianist praised for his technical brilliance and vivid yet gentle touch. Bach’s second Cello Suite is breathtaking in it’s virtuosic demands, yet carries a solitude and tragedy that intensifies the passion of the Suite. Escaramuza (Spanish for ‘skirmish’), is written especially for the ‘wildly talented Mark Simpson’, as Holt describes him – a one-movement energetic flourish.
