‘Zimmermann brings us Clarke’s Sonata in mesmerising focus and saturated colour.’  BBC Radio 3 Record Review

In this concert, Tabea Zimmermann and highly regarded pianist Dénes Várjon honour the work of ‘the glorious Rebecca Clarke’, in the words of Rubinstein.

When Clarke anonymously entered her ravishing viola sonata into the Berkshire Chamber Music competition in 1919 few could believe a young woman capable of such assurance and expressive mastery.

Zimmermann and Várjon contrast Clarke with the young Mendelssohn’s turbulent Sonata in C, Schumann’s bewitching Märchenbilder, Clara Schumann’s poignant Romances and the haunting poetry of Fanny Mendelssohn’s songs.
