Brahms’ Op.116 Fantasies are characteristic of the composer’s mature style: introspective, melancholic, yet tender. Haydn’s C minor Sonata – his only one in that key – begins in a similar vein, but takes a more dramatic turn before ending with a brief return to a more reflective mood.
The second half opens with the elegant humour of Beethoven’s Op.33 Bagatelles and closes with Haydn’s late E flat major Sonata – his most expansive work for the piano, almost Beethovenian in scale.
