On New Year’s day in 1888 the violinist Adolf Brodsky and his wife conspired to arrange a “chance” meeting between Brahms, Tchaikovsky & Grieg. Even more remarkable is that this event was chronicled in detail by both Tchaikovsky & Anna Brodsky in their diary. While Brahms & Tchaikovsky were uneasy companions due to their musical differences, the event was saved by the wit and grace of Grieg and his wife. Anna Brodsky described their shared meal as being  “more like a children’s party than a gathering of great composers”

To celebrate the unlikely friendships that were formed that day, the Steinberg Duo explore the work of these Great Composers through each other’s ears and reminiscences, along with another good friend of Grieg’s, Liszt.

  • Brahms Sonata for Piano & Violin No.3 in D minor, Op.108
