Program notes

Exceptional cellist Gautier Capuçon and prodigy Kim Bernard join forces at the Verbier Church to perform Romantic sonatas by Brahms and Grieg!

Brahms’s Cello Sonata No. 1 in E Minor (1862–1865) is distinctly Baroque in character, demonstrating the composer’s life-long interest in the music of J.S. Bach. The first movement echoes the Third Contrapunctus of Bach’s The Art of Fugue, while the second evokes a Baroque-style minuet, and the last is fugal in structure. However, Brahms likewise remains rooted in an innovative Romantic tradition by blending vast dynamic contrast and chromatic harmony throughout this sonata.
