John Toal introduces the first of four recitals from this year's Clandeboye Festival recorded at the Clandeboye Estate outside Bangor, Country Down. Today's concert features pianist Barry Douglas performing a programme of Brahms and Schubert. The Brahms Sonata is an epic piece of orchestral proportions, while Schubert's Wanderer Fantasy conjures up vivid colours and virtuosity.

John Toal introduces the third of four recital programmes from this year's Clandeboye Festival at the Clandeboye Estate in Bangor, Co. Down. Today's concert features music from Brahms and Beethoven, and soloists Barry Douglas and violinist Elina Vahala. Brahms' 3 Intermezzi display the composer's more reflective side: intimate pieces he wrote towards the end of his life. While in contrast, the Beethoven Violin Sonata in A is a showpiece for violin and pianist- a real musical 'tour de force'.

Beethoven: Violin Sonata in A op. 47 "Kreutzer"
