Lachrymae: Works for Viola and Piano by Brahms, Britten, Shostakovich, Leef

Tabea Zimmermann and Javier Perianes explore valedictory works that speak of retrospection and leave-taking: their selection ranges from Brahms’s late Sonata in E-flat major to Britten’s melancholy Dowland variations, to Shostakovich’s final composition.


Solace by Israeli composer Yinam Leef (born in 1953) provides a motto for this intimate duo program.

  • Yinam Leef - Solace for Solo Viola
  • Johannes Brahms - Sonata for Viola and Piano in E-flat major Op. 120 No. 2 *** - ***
  • Benjamin Britten - Lachrymae – Reflections on a Song of John Dowland for Viola and Piano Op. 48
