Elisabeth Brauß fotografiert von Felix Broede

A lot comes together in the recital of Elisabeth Brauß, the Levit student and Kammermusikakademie scholar of 2016! Especially in the two piano cycles by Robert Schumann and Paul Hindemith that she plays: "Carnaval" is a musical round dance in which real people such as Clara Schumann or the composers Frédéric Chopin and Niccolò Paganini meet characters from the commedia dell'arte as well as the "Davidsbündler" invented by Schumann. Hindemith's "Night Pieces" combine even more diversity with Debussy touches and virtuoso interludes, a foxtrot and a Bach fugue. Schumann's friend Johannes Brahms seems harmless in comparison with his collection of extroverted capriccios and inward-looking intermezzi.
