Notes & Reviews:

Distinguished Canadian artists Donna Brown, soprano and Jane Coop, piano, join forces in this new collection of 21 powerful and poignant Brahms art songs. The title reflects the predominant mood of longing, a sentiment that Brahms expresses so uniquely and so deeply. From translucence to darkest ebony, the variety of colors throughout is evocative and touching. Added bonuses in the recording are the two songs with viola with the superb collaboration of Yariv Aloni, and the three solo piano Intermezzi Op.117 with Ms. Coop.A national treasure, Donna Brown has performed and recorded with dozens of eminent conductors and orchestras of the world, including Helmuth Rilling, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Kent Nagano, Bernard Haitink, the London Philharmonic, L'Orchestre de Paris, Israel Philharmonic, NHK Orchestra, and the San Francisco Symphony.
