Then & Now 9/19: Romance of the Cello

On this date in 1894, the Brahms two Clarinet Sonatas were premiered at a private performance in the home of the sister of the Duke of Meiningen with the composer at the piano. They also gave private performances of both sonatas in November for Clara Schumann and others.
