Brahms 4 Hands
Format: COMPACT DISC
Brahms composed relatively few original works for piano four hands, but arranged almost all of his chamber music and orchestral works for this instrumentation. He also used to play most of the works for four hands with Clara Schumann immediately after completion. For the piano duo Wyneke Jordans & Leo van Doeselaar, it was an obvious choice to conclude their series of recordings of four-handed piano works by German composers on period instruments with the music of Brahms. On the Blüthner grand piano from 1867, it becomes clear how Brahms made perfect use of the entire keyboard in his writing for four hands. The various registers appear completely transparent and clear.
