Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Hearing it, as here, from a mini-choir with four-hands piano accompaniment is a new experience. And purists dare not complain, because it was Brahms himself who, at his publisher's request, arranged his orchestral score for piano duet - to expand its performance possibilities... Not only do Christophers and company realize the piece with technical finesse and outsize vocal richness, but they deliver Brahms's full range of emotional and spiritual intensity - especially its sense of warm, almost maternal comfort (after all, the work was inspired by his mother's passing). In that sense, they have captured the work's true essence." - American Record Guide
