Through Brahms: Disc 2 (2011)

<em>Through Brahms:</em> Disc 2

Disc II highlights Brahms’s lifelong fascination with Gypsy folk music by presenting his lusty Hungarian Dances surrounded by other examples of composers drawing from Eastern European folk idioms, including the famous rondo “in the Gypsy style” from Haydn’s G Major Piano Trio and the Slavonic Dances by Brahms’s protégé Antonín Dvořák. Also included is the f minor Sonata for Two Pianos—a blueprint for Brahms’s seminal Opus 34 Piano Quintet—as well as three lieder by the master of nineteenth-century song composition, Franz Schubert.
