Brahms’ late Intermezzi, Op.117, form the framework of Kolesnikov’s thoughtful programme. The first half of his recital juxtaposes the first of these introspective works with Beethoven’s early Op.7 Sonata, in the same key of E flat.
Three quietly reflective miniatures by Tchaikovsky open the second half. Though lesser known than that of his famous nephew François, Louis Couperin’s music is imbued with inventiveness and a reflective melancholy – making an intriguing coupling with the second and third of Brahms’ Op.117 Intermezzi.
