    Like his mentor, Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms inspired the next generation of composers, including Dame Ethel Smyth (1858-1944), a pioneering composer, author and suffragette. Her glorious double concerto reflects his influence (and that of Strauss), while asserting her own unique compositional voice. Brilliant violinist Jennifer Frautschi returns to Boulder with her husband, Eric Ruske, for this unique gem of a duo concerto.
