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.

Golden Viennese horn sound, full and at the same time tender piano and velvet, emotional violin sound and vibrato is the beginning of this recording which opens the gate to the powerful, romantic world of Johannes Brahms' music. Deep feelings and musical thoughts are presented with technical easiness, keeping the musical phrase and expression in the center of the listener's attention. The only idea this recording really shows off are Brahms' words "I speak through my music".

The first Brahms, the last Brahms, the first Berg: Brahms was twenty when he composed his Third Sonata in 1853, Berg twenty-three at the time of his only Sonata in that year 1910 … If the Sonata in F minor of Brahms represents the fulfillment and summit of the great romantic sonata - the timing of his symphonic gigantism - in the lineage from Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven to Schumann, Berg's Sonata symbolizes both the end of an epoch Closing the romantic sonata and opening up to the future. It is quite another world than that of Intermezzi Op. 117 of 1892, in which the art of chiaroscuro and half-tone is expressed. Brahms reconnects with the piano and his last cycles form a kind of pianistic testament. It is perhaps the most intimate of Brahms, who will also call some of his later plays "the lullabies of my pain" … Berg will obviously remember it in his Sonata.

But Shehata is a lot more than that, as he proves in his GENUIN debut release: a full-blooded musician who knows how to best bring out the unique colors and qualities of his instrument – whether in original works by Glière and Koussevitzky or arrangements of cello works by Bruch and Brahms. Both rugged and sweet-sounding, brilliant and down-to-earth – for lovers of distinctive sound!
