Following the two quintets, the extended Mandelring Quartet now presents the two string sextets by Johannes Brahms. This recording completes the Audite series of Brahms' Chamber Music for Strings with the Mandelring Quartet. As in the quintets, the ensemble is joined by its long-standing former violist, Roland Glassl, for the second viola part. The second cello part is played by the renowned cellist Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt. In Brahms' oeuvre, the sextets broke new ground. Their dark hues and their inclination towards symphonic sonorities are often accentuated. In this recording, the lyrical moments as well as Brahms' masterfully transparent, seemingly three-dimensional writing, and thus the works' inner contrasts, are also emphasized.

Classical music for children has been an underserved genre, even though nothing could be more beneficial to the cause of bringing the music to future generations. Any such release is worthy of note, but one like this, charming and original, is cause for celebration. Pianist Jenny Lin organizes for children some favorite compositions and a few delightful rarities along a timeline "from breakfast to bedtime." There are 26 short pieces, enough to give a feel for the variety and importance of this tradition in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Along the way you get Chopsticks, which you may not have known was an actual composition with an actual composer (female, at that), former chestnuts like Grieg's Grandmother's Minuet, the utterly charming I Danced with a Mosquito by Anatoly Liadov, ragtime and jazz works, and, to end, starlight familiar (Mozart) and more rare (Selim Palmgren), plus the famed cradle songs of Brahms and Chopin. Lin and the engineers from the Steinway label create a magical atmosphere, amplified by excellent children's illustrations in the booklet by Mikela Prevost. An ideal holiday, or anytime, gift item.

Isabelle Faust goes back to the roots of one of the most famous Romantic concertos, which is also one of the most difficult from a technical point of view: did Hans von Bülow not call it a ‘concerto against the violin’? Born of close collaboration between Brahms and the violinist Joseph Joachim, the work is a fine testimony to friendship – whereas the Sextet op.36 is directly linked to the love affair between the composer and the beautiful Agathe von Siebold.
