Notes & Reviews:

Brahms' output for solo piano falls distinctly in top three groups: the early impetuous works, then from 1854-73 the more technical works, and, finally the late works from the 1890s included on this CD. The Op.116 set is remarkable in that its seven linked numbers form a single unity. Op.117 contains probably some of the most beautiful music Brahms's composed. Op.118 contains severe technical demands for the performer, as well as music of incredible passion and sadness. Op.119 contains a Rhapsody, which is widely regarded as a final tribute to his pianist friend Clara Schumann. Recording made in 2002. In 1971 Hakon Austbo won the prestigious Olivier Messiaen prize. His recording of Scriabin sonatas was praised by the Gramophone as 'Scriabin playing that can stand comparison with the finest on record'.
