Brahms: 8 Klavierstücke, Op. 76
Brahms: Variations on a Theme by Paganini, Op. 35 Bk 1
Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition
Last season saw Barry Douglas celebrating the anniversary of his 1986 victory at the Tchaikovsky Competition with a packed schedule and the release – to great acclaim – of the final CD in his series of the complete Brahms solo piano works. We are thrilled to have him at SJE and with a programme that is a tour-de-force: Brahms’ demanding Variations on a Theme by Paganini and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, the very first work Barry Douglas recorded.
