Notes & Reviews:

The penultimate release in a series described by BBC Music as a 'triumph of Brahmsian thought', this album may be the most virtuosic to date, offering the transcendent early Scherzo in E flat minor, technically demanding variations and intermezzi, and three tuneful Hungarian Dances.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2015
If you like your Brahms super-rugged, this CD will not disappoint. Douglas's powerful tone and serious demeanour captures the composer's uncompromising side; yet there's a sense of flow that makes the intermezzos generous and warm without veering towards the emotionally indulgent.

The Guardian, 25th September 2015
It's a well thought-out and stylistically comprehensive survey, which throws an interesting, and conspicuously non-French perspective on a genre that came into its own in the 20th century.
