Fresh from their recording of these works, Associate Professor of Viola, Zhang Manchin, and Associate Professor of Piano, Albert Tiu, perform Brahms' two sonatas Op. 120, originally for clarinet, as well as the earlier E minor Cello Sonata Op. 38. Brahms himself transcribed the Clarinet Sonatas for the viola, and they have become substantial staples of the viola repertoire.
