An Unfailing Cosmos „With Opp. 119 und 120, this CD regroups the last solo piano work and the last chamber work composed by Brahms. These two genres played a major role in his output, and in these pieces one can easily hear that Brahms is drawing a finishing stroke. Their respective structures contrast as much as possible with one another – extended sonatas vs. short pieces –, thereby offering us a glimpse into the inexhaustible universe of a composer’s entire life. Placed between the two monumental sonatas, the piano intermezzos offer the listener a breather for introspection and contemplation.“ (The Artists)
