Andras Schiff / Jorg Widman

Johannes Brahms - Clarinet Sonatas (CD)

Two great artists, pianist Andras Schiff and composer/clarinettist Jorg Widmann, join forces for the first time on record, performing Brahms’s late masterpieces, the clarinet sonatas op. 120, written in 1894. In between the sonatas Schiff plays Widmann's evocative Intermezzi for piano.

As Jorg Widmann explains in a programme note, these are works inspired by his friendship with Andras Schiff and by a shared love of Brahms, to whom they pay tribute. The album was recorded at Neumarkt's Historischer Reitstadel.
