Through Brahms: Disc 6 (2011)

<em>Through Brahms:</em> Disc 6

In 1853, at the encouragement of violinist Joseph Joachim, Brahms traveled to Düsseldorf to play his compositions for Robert and Clara Schumann. Robert and Clara would remain a key influence on Brahms, in both art and life, forging one of the most complex triangular relationships in Western art. Disc VI features works by both Schumanns, including Clara’s Piano Trio and Robert’s Spanische Liebslieder, the inspiration for Brahms’s own Liebeslieder Waltzes. The disc concludes with Brahms’s exuberant and joyful Opus 111 String Quintet.
