EKANAYAKA, T.: Reinventions – Rhapsodies for Piano (Ekanayaka)
Tanya Ekanayaka is one of Sri Lanka’s foremost pianists and an internationally acclaimed composer. Her ‘deeply autobiographical’ piano compositions, or reinventions, introduce a novel and hybrid musical genre that takes a wide variety of Sri Lankan melodies—ancient, folk and popular—and blends them with motifs inspired by the tonal centres of established classical compositions by Bach, Beethoven, Ravel and others.

Johannes Brahms 1833-1897 – Sonatas for clarinet and piano op.120 / 6 Klavierstücke op.118
The two sonatas for clarinet and piano, composed in 1894, were Brahms's last chamber works. Knowing that he could count on the virtuosity of their dedicatee, the prodigious clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld (1856-1907), Brahms enthusiastically exploited all the expressive possibilities of the instrument. Under the fingers of Lorenzo Coppola, the clarinet prays, sobs, dreams or laughs, bringing astonishing conviction to all these varied emotions.
