The three sonatas for violin and piano of Johannes Brahms are landmarks of classical/romantic music. These great works range from the grace and lyricism of Sonata No. 1 in G major, Op. 78, to the majesty and dignity of Sonata No. 2 in A major, Op. 100, the "Thun" or "Meistersinger" – and on to the passion and tempestuousness of the popular Sonata No. 3 in D minor, Op. 108. All of the power, introspection, and beauty of Brahms are on display in these chamber music masterpieces.

An examination of the iconic Japanese composer through his chamber works, curated and performed by flutist Diane Grubbe, pianist Frank Johnson and guests. Largely self-taught but influenced by Debussy, Schoenberg, Messiaen and others, Takemitsu developed a unique style, blending elements of Western classical music and the sound of traditional Eastern instruments, in addition to serial music and musique concrete.
