Brahms

Audio will be available later today.

Brahms used his last orchestral composition to tie up some personal loose ends — fulfilling a promise to a cellist and apologizing to a violinist. The result is his Double Concerto for Violin and Cello, which we'll hear in concert with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra. Marek Janowski conducts, with violin soloist Guy Braunstein and cellist Alban Gerhardt.
