This is Volume 4 in Barry Douglas’s monumental project to record the complete works for solo piano by Johannes Brahms. Each volume has been released to critical acclaim, the first one, in 2012, being seen by BBC Music as ‘a triumph of Brahmsian thought, with playing that gets right to the heart of the composer’. Once again, the album is presented as a stand-alone recital, prominently featuring the C major Sonata, which was Brahms’s first published work. The influence on Brahms of his early romantic predecessors Beethoven and Schubert is obvious here, not only in the virtuoso demands on the performer but also in the opening, which recalls both Beethoven’s ‘Hammerklavier’ Sonata, Op. 106 and Schubert’s ‘Wanderer’ Fantasy.

This album is the penultimate in what BBC Music has described as a ‘triumph of Brahmsian thought’, namely the survey by Barry Douglas of the composer’s complete works for solo piano. Three years after the release of Volume 1, the winner of the 1986 Tchaikovsky Competition is now performing this repertoire in the finest international venues, such as the Wigmore Hall in July 2015 and Concertgebouw in 2016, when the series will come to a highly anticipated climax with the final volume. Taking a big step further in his career with this achievement, Barry Douglas is gaining a reputation of one of the few accomplished world-class piano virtuosi of the romantic repertoire.

Barry Douglas returns for the highly anticipated third volume in his series devoted to Brahms’s solo piano music, the first two volumes having been met with widespread critical acclaim. Of Vol. 2, International Record Review wrote, ‘this is indeed Brahms playing of the utmost integrity and authority… this cycle looks set to become a benchmark. The selected Intermezzi performed here come from the collections of short piano pieces which Brahms published in 1892 – 93, his last works for piano. A sense of wistful, melancholic reflection pervades these exquisitely crafted masterpieces of Brahms’s late maturity.

In the sixth and final volume of his complete works for piano by Brahms, the Irish pianist Barry Douglas - which one recalls Rafla first prize at the Tchaikovsky Competition in 1986, the first non-Russian since Van Cliburn in 1958 - we present the composer historian, arranger and teacher. Historian, he is with his rooms in the old style - gigue, sarabande, canon -; and at the same time, arranger with the gavotte from Gluck. Arranger, he is with his own Hungarian Dances rewritten for piano solo (the original being for piano four hands), and in Walk Rákóczy (also known as the Hungarian March) from Berlioz; and at the same time teacher since the studies we present Douglas are written respectively by Chopin, Bach and Weber - the latter especially in a pretty sneaky arrangement of the Chaconne, originally for solo violin by Brahms for the left hand alone .

With this new volume, Barry Douglas once again weaves a magic web with Celtic tunes that have been handed down from generation to generation. His playing is entwined sometimes with new material composed by his musical companions, internationally renowned for their fearless explorations and interpretations of Scottish music. 'Bíonn cúig insint ar gach scéal agus dhá ghabháil déag ar gach amhrán': there may be five versions of every story but there are twelve interpretations of each song. The old Irish proverb reflects an acknowledgement that each artist makes his or her own of material that has been handed down. The result is a beautiful, wistful celebration of melodic riches. Listen and be entranced.
