Hello Brahms!

This was just on the radio:

The andante from the trio in ES for clarinet, viola and piano by Julius Röntgen, written in 1921. And don’t you think it sounds a lot like the last movement of the Brahms trio for clarinet, cello and piano?

Maybe I’m exaggerating a bit. But if you’ve played the Brahms trio and clarinet sonatas, the Röntgen has a remarkable resemblance and seems to use many of the motives. It made me smile.
