We have great pleasure in welcoming Michael Freyhan as our guest speaker at the AGM. Michael combines playing chamber music concerts with musicological research and writing. Although primarily a pianist and harpsichordist, he also plays the violin and viola. Michael will talk about ‘Brahms and the Viola’, drawing on his letters and contemporary reviews, with reminiscences from the pianist Ilona Eibenschütz (recorded by the BBC in 1952), who knew him and turned pages for him in a performance of the clarinet (viola) sonatas.
