James Ehnes & Steven Osborne

Play Brahms, Ravel, Debussy & Prokofiev

Two of today’s most respected soloists perform a sumptuous recital of Brahms, Ravel, Debussy & Prokofiev.

James Ehnes Violin
Steven Osborne Piano

Brahms Violin Sonata No 3
Prokofiev Violin Sonata No 1
Debussy Violin Sonata
Prokofiev Five Melodies
Ravel Tzigane, rapsodie de concert 

Two of today’s most respected soloists, Canadian violinist James Ehnes and Scottish pianist Steven Osborne form a gloriously natural partnership, sharing unforced virtuosity, searching insights and a wonderfully generous musicianship.

From the turbulent but richly melodic Brahms Third Violin Sonata through to the gypsy abandon of Ravel’s spectacular showpiece Tzigane, their International Festival recital is full of dramatic contrasts.

In between, they take in Debussy’s sensual yet sharply defined Violin Sonata, and the unflinching introspection of Prokofiev’s intense First Violin Sonata.
