Live from Wigmore Hall, London

Daniil Trifonov performs Brahms's take on Bach's great Chaconne, alongside his Paganini Variations, and sonatas by Schubert and Rachmaninov. Brahms deliberately wrote his piano transcription for the left hand alone in order to better duplicate the restrictions of the violin.

Bach/Brahms: Chaconne (Violin Partita No. 2 in D minor, BWV1004)
Schubert: Sonata in G major D894 'Fantasie'
Brahms: Variations on a Theme by Paganini (Book I) Op. 35

Interval
