Bohórquez/Nagy - "On the Shoulders of Giants" (repeat broadcast)
Throughout their lives, Robert and Clara Schumann maintained intensive contact with composers, musicians, students and anyone coming to them for advice. In 1853 Robert used his final essay, "Neue Bahnen" (New Paths), to introduce the 20-year-old Johannes Brahms to the musical world, hailing him as a genius – a moment that cemented the composers' affinity with one another.
For this concert, cellist Claudio Bohórquez and pianist Péter Nagy take you to the heart of this relationship, performing Schumann's groundbreaking song-cycle Dichterliebe ("A Poet's Love"), arranged for cello, alongside his Three Romances Op. 94 and Brahms's Cello Sonata No. 2 of 1886 – all repertoire that has featured on their recent award-winning albums on Berlin Classics.
