Bijl + Leslie: Brahms & more

Sat 6 April @ 20:00 - 21:30

$22 – $29

BRAHMS AND OTHER CATS

Hard to believe, but it's an actual question in the Dutch version of Trivial Pursuit:

Which composer was well known for shooting at stray cats with bow and arrow?
Answer: Johannes Brahms.

Only quite recently this famous composer was finally cleared of a vicious rumour of being an infamous cat-slayer. Turns out it was fellow composer Richard Wagner, who spread the rumours out of sheer dislike of Brahms' music (and success?).

Master pianist Michael Leslie is a huge admirer of Brahms' Clarinet Sonata in E flat Major, and is convinced that the piece will come to life even more in a version for Niels Bijl on alto saxophone and piano.

Interested? Have a listen, decide for yourself.
