Christian Gerhaher. Gerold Huber
Johannes Brahms devoted almost his entire life as a composer to song writing. In doing so, he set poetry texts of a wide stylistic range and a large number of authors. For musicologist Matthias Schmidt, the songs are at the same time a key to understanding his work as a whole: "They are everyday finger exercises, but also provide an opportunity for experimentation in a very confined space." The great Lied interpreter Christian Gerhaher, together with his piano partner Gerold Huber, here puts together a thoughtful, affectionate selection for a very personal Brahms afternoon.
