Matty J Hifi
Classical Rough and Ready, February 2010

The setting is more intimate, and the reduced instrumentation can sometimes greatly, and beneficially, expose the structures of the music. That said, there are still moments where a single piano, even with two pianists, cannot convey the epic power of the original…This music is amongst the most accessible, the most intense, the most beautiful that Brahms ever wrote, and if the reduction gives up some of the power, it gives up little of the profundity. Whatever garb you dress it in, the soul of Brahms is still underneath.

Famous Composers Quick Link:
Bach | Beethoven | Chopin | Dowland | Handel | Haydn | Mozart | Glazunov | Schumann | R Strauss | Vivaldi
