The popular Piccadilly Chamber Music Series is delighted to present five candlelit concerts from January to July 2022 at St James’ Piccadilly, exploring the chamber music of Johannes Brahms alongside music of other great romantic composers who influenced this towering genius, or who were influenced by Brahms himself.  

The second programme in the series features two virtuoso works by romantic composers and friends Chopin and Mendelssohn, whose music and pianism were enormous influences on Brahms’ own music. This is set against a 20th Century masterpiece of British Romanticism, by Frank Bridge whose Phantasie Trio is imbued with grand melodic lines, rich harmonies and athletic pianism of Brahms.
