Concerto Violin & Violincello A minor, op. 102

Johannes Brahms
Duration: 32'
Vivace non troppo

Composed in 1887, Johannes Brahms' Double Concerto in A Minor, Op. 102, stands as a remarkable example of late Romanticism and a rare instance of a concerto for violin and cello. The work is distinguished by its dialogic interplay between the two solo instruments, with both violin and cello shining in a blend of harmony and contrast. Spanning three movements – Allegro, Andante, and Vivace non troppo – the concerto offers a fusion of dramatic intensity, lyrical beauty, and spirited vivacity. Brahms' ability to combine complex structures with emotional depth renders this concerto one of the most captivating pieces in his oeuvre.
