AUGUST 19-27, 2023


Music on the Strait 2023 Finale Livestream: 

Jeremy Denk and Friends

Sunday, August 27


Clara Schumann | Three Romances for Violin and Piano, Op 22 (1853)

Robert Schumann | Adagio and Allegro, Op 70 (1849) 


Johannes Brahms | Piano Quartet in A major, Op 26 (1861) 

In October 1853, a 20-year-old young composer named Johannes Brahms knocked on the door of Robert and Clara Schumann with a letter of introduction. That same year, Clara Schumann wrote her Three Romances for Violin and Piano, and Robert Schumann soon proclaimed Brahms the heir to Beethoven’s musical lineage and so began one of the most intimate friendships in music history. Jeremy Denk leads us on a rare and remarkable journey to explore these three intertwined musical voices.
