      Airs, dances, and waltzes: French hornist and conductor James Sommerville

      Our performance at this concert of Brahms’ Liebeslieder Waltzes will offer Sommerville a welcome opportunity to show his considerable gifts as a conductor. Bursting with syncopation and interesting metre changes, the waltzes are also just that: oom-pah-pahing songs meant for popular audiences. Tremendous hits in Vienna (is there a better measure of a waltz’s mark?), the works earned Brahms a fortune — but, alas, not the hand of Clara Schumann, in whose honour it’s thought they were secretly written. Clara’s hands were more than full already with her demanding husband Robert, not to mention her career as one of Europe’s greatest pianists.
