The celebrated cello and piano duo of Raphael Wallfisch and John York present Schubert’s famous Arpeggione Sonata and the cello arrangement of Brahms’ beautiful second clarinet sonata, in his beautiful elegiac ‘late style’ of the 1890s.
At the same time, in London, Elgar was composing his miniatures Chanson de nuit and Chanson de matin.
In this concert, they provide attractive preludes to Bloch’s ambitious Suite from 1919.
