Johannes Brahms (1833 – 1897)
Trio in E-flat major for Flugelhorn, Violin and Piano, Op. 40 (1865)

The legendary Russian trumpet virtuoso Sergei Nakariakov has been tirelessly widening his repertoire into the domain of chamber music, with works adapted for the trumpet or for related brass instruments. This programme includes a suite of Stravinsky’s wittiest and most provocative music specially arranged by the violinist Dmitry Sitkovetsky. The Yiddish Lexicon, by the Moscow-born, Boston-based composer Jacov Jacoulov, is a fascinating 10-movement piece originally written for oboe, bassoon and piano: each of the movements is his musical take on a word or saying in Yiddish. Brahms’s Horn Trio, a serious and moving piece dedicated to the memory of his mother, is played here with flugelhorn (instead of the original French horn). This instrument was popular in Germany during Brahms’s time - it is mellower than the trumpet and blends more easily in traditional chamber ensembles.
