A new dark comedy with live violin music
A party celebrates Johannes Brahms’ Violin Concerto’s first performance. His friends are all there – loyal Herzogenberg, embittered Clara Schumann, waspish critic Hanslick. The evening unfolds in a series of passionate recriminations and farcical misunderstandings until its moving climax. Laughing through our tears we ask – what is the cost of art?
