Notes and Editorial Reviews

Golden Viennese horn sound, full and at the same time tender piano, and velvet, emotional violin sound and vibrato is the beginning of this recording which opens the gate to the powerful, romantic world of Johannes Brahms' music. Deep feelings and musical thoughts are presented with technical easiness, keeping the musical phrase and expression in the center of the listener's attention. The only idea this recording really shows off are Brahms' words "I speak through my music.” A native Bulgarian, Bojidara Kouzmanova-Vladar began playing violin at the age of four. Since then she has won numerous national and international violin competitions in Europe and the United States. Wolfgang Vladar studied horn at the Wiener Musikhochshule, and Read more made his debut at age 20 at the Vienna Volksoper. Pianist Magda Amara graduated from the Tchaikovsky Conservatory.
