Brahms referred privately to his Three Intermezzi Op. 117 as ‘cradle-songs of my sorrows’. Steven Osborne, RPS Instrumentalist of the Year in 2013, presents Brahms’s lachrymose lullabies as reflective interludes between Beethoven’s last three sonatas.

The Scottish pianist’s revelatory programme concludes with the Piano Sonata No. 32 in C minor, in which Beethoven pushes forward the limits of artistic creation.
