Radio 3 in Concert

Live from St John's Smith Square in London, Martin Handley presents a concert of music for two pianos, with Pierre Laurent-Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich playing Brahms and Messiaen as part of Southbank Centre's International Piano Series. With Brahms's Sonata in F minor, which he re-wrote on the advice of Clara Schumann, and is better known now as the Piano Quintet. Following the interval, the programme concludes with a performance of Messiaen's mystical Visions de l'amen. Written soon after the composer's release from a German prison camp, the work is richly spiritual, incorporating bells and Messiaen's characteristic birdsong. Brahms: Piano Sonata in F minor, Op 34b. Messiaen: Visions de l'amen. Pierre Laurent-Aimard, Tamara Stefanovich (pianos). Including 8.15 Interval. Plus music from the latest round of Adopt-a-Composer projects, which pair a composer with an amateur performing group in order to write and perform a new piece of music.
