Piece: Johannes Brahms — Sonata No. 2 in E-flat Major Op. 120
Why did you choose this piece?
I chose this piece because of its utter beauty and because of the millions of options it presents to both of the soloists. It is unlike many of Brahms' compositions, so it is very unique and fun to play. When I play it, I get lost in heart wrenching climaxes and beautiful phrases.
