John Toal presents a solo piano recital by Barry Douglas. Brahms: Variations on a Theme of Paganini, Op 35 (Book 2). Schubert: Sonata in A, D959.

John Toal introduces the first of four recitals from this year's Clandeboye Festival recorded at the Clandeboye Estate outside Bangor, County Down. Today's concert features pianist Barry Douglas performing a programme of Brahms and Schubert. Brahms's Variations on a Theme of Paganini was written in 1863 and is based on the Caprice No. 24 by Niccolò Paganini. This is followed by Schubert's Sonata in A Major: among the composer's last works for the piano, and containing material developed from other compositions.
