2020 release. The pianist and the composer/clarinettist join forces for the first time on record, performing Brahms's late masterpieces, the clarinet sonatas op. 120, written in 1894. In between the sonatas Schiff plays Widmann's evocative Intermezzi for piano. As Widmann explains in a program note, these are works inspired by his friendship with Schiff and by a shared love of Brahms, to whom they pay tribute. The album was recorded at Neumarkt's Historischer Reitstadel.
