Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Brahms made an important contribution to the lieder repertoire, composing some 200 for solo voice and piano alone. They reflect virtually his entire emotional spectrum, from jolly folksongs to the most melancholic, high romantic songs. Because of the intense and timeless interpretation of Koningsberger and Grout the eternal themes of love, impotence, beauty and death are surprisingly vivid.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
A fine release, warmly recommended.
