Bach Weekend: Violin Sonatas

The sonatas and partitas that Bach wrote for use at home and amongst friends are just as beautiful as his cantatas, and they contain some of his profoundest inspirations. Isabelle Faust and Kristian Bezuidenhout both understand this music from the inside. In fact, when Faust performed the partitas at the Wigmore Hall…

BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert: BBC Singers

Pizzetti’s music naturally tended towards drama, with expressive melodies and choral writing born of the lilting rhythms of the Italian language. His compositions are rarely performed today, but this is the kind of music that leaves a lasting impression. Debussy also has this power – the ability to weave stories from a…

BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert: Cédric Tiberghien

BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert: Michael Collins

Mozart’s Trio was the first piece written for the combination of clarinet, viola and piano. And its nickname – ‘Kegelstatt’, meaning bowling alley – betrays the lively spirit at play between the instruments. He ends with Brahms, and the second clarinet sonata from Op 120, which coaxed the composer out of an early…

BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert: Michael Collins/Heath Quartet

Brahms’ Clarinet Quintet is distinctly his own. Written shortly before his premature retirement, this is Brahms at his peak. And this work manages to balance his own personality – out in force – with a subtle homage to a predecessor written by Mozart. Just like his model, the final movement is a lively theme and…

BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert:Michael Collins/Michael McHale

Reinecke’s Introduction and Allegro appassionato shows a masterful blending of two instruments. Neither one can be heard to dominate, as they work together towards a dramatic conclusion.

The trumpet tends to attract players of larger-than-life charisma, and Pálfalvi is no exception.
