Notes and Editorial Reviews

At twenty year's distance, Brahms offers us two captivating faces of his chamber music, with which these poignantly nostalgic lieder for two alto voices rightly belong. The emotional depth and intimacy characteristic of Hausmusik are enriched in the Quintet by the convertante outbursts of the piano and the almost symphonic intensity of the strings: a masterly achievement.
