Anastasia Kobekina. Jean-Sélim Abdelmoula
Brahms: at the edge of the night

The famous triangular relationship between Brahms and Clara and Robert Schumann – in this concert it can be heard. Anastasia Kobekina, one of the most stylistically versatile musicians of the generation around 30, thinks it further into the present: her father, Vladimir Kobekin, known in Russia primarily for his operas, composed a fantasy on the first of Clara Schumann's "Three Romances". The perspective vanishing point of the program is Brahms' elegiac First Cello Sonata in E minor – a work in which Swiss pianist Jean-Sélim Abdelmoula will also be particularly challenged.
