Great Music in Irish Houses Festival 2019 - Brahms and Beethoven

Performances from the 2019 Great Music in Irish Houses Festival, with music by Brahms and Beethoven.

In our final visit to the 2019 Great Music in Irish Houses Festival, we have music from Brahms and Beethoven. Opening today’s concert, cellist Mark Coppey and pianist Finghin Collins perform Brahms’ “Cello Sonata in E minor”, written over a period of three years in the 1860s, with the piano having a more prominent role. And we finish this week with the Pavel Haas Quartet with Beethoven’s “String Quartet in C Major” taken from the composer’s middle period, one of his “Razumovsky” quartets, commissioned by Count Razumovsky, the Russian ambassador to Vienna.
