Brahms - Works For Solo Piano Vol.3
Composed by: Brahms, Johannes
Barry Douglas returns for the third volume in his Johannes Brahms’s solo piano music series, the first two volumes meeting widespread critical acclaim. The selected Intermezzi performed here, works of wistful, melancholic reflection, come from the collections of short piano pieces Brahms published in 1892–93. Composed at aged 20, the Piano Sonata in F sharp minor is full of youthful, strident energy. The sixteen Waltzes, op. 39, capture the sense of joyful abandon often associated with the genre but their romanticism and nostalgia are uniquely Brahmsian.
