New CD release

Two years after their last CD, the Aris Quartett focuses on Johannes Brahms with their fifth production.

Included are two key works of the chamber music literature of the 19th century: The String Quartet in C minor, dating from the early period of maturity, is characterized by how the composer dealt with personal losses and how he overcame great doubts. The Clarinet Quintet is one of Brahms' last works ever. A swan song to his oeuvre, perhaps even to Romanticism in general.

Chamber music partner of the quartet is the clarinettist Thorsten Johanns.

 

The recording is a co-production of Deutschlandfunk and BBC Radio 3 and will be released by Genuin Classics.

The CD will be available from October 02, 2020, for example on amazon.com oder jpc.de
