Notes & Reviews:

When Connoisseur Society released the Raim/Wehr duo's recording of the Brahms Hungarian Dances for Piano Duet, Fanfare magazine said: "I cannot imagine this music being presented with such overwhelming elan as the Raim/Wehr duo displays on this release. The playing creates a sense of two gifted artists egging each other on to ever-higher levels of musicianship, virtuosity and sheer fun. Whether or not I am right in suspecting that a lot of smiling must have been going on in the studio, they certainly made me smile again and again. Raim and Wehr are irresistible." This sense of joy and discovery has permeated every aspect of the preparation and execution of this recording of Dvorak's Slavonic Dances. After a particularly happy performance of the complete Brahms Hungarian Dances at Duquesne University in 2005 as part of "Brahms on the Bluff,' (a three year series devoted to the complete Brahms chamber music). Cynthia and I decided to seek out a new project. This wonderful cd is the result.
