Synopsis

Album Description
There can be no denying that brahms knew how to compose melodies that linger in the memory and tug at the heartstrings. And the mature masterpieces on this disc prove the point. In yet another triumph from australian ex-pat pianist antony gray, this is an album for all lovers of romantic music. With exquisite melancholy, subtlety and a quiet nostalgia, antony gray captures these last pieces for piano that brahms committed to paper. Standout performances on this outstanding album include the four piano pieces, op. 119, while the final rhapsody is breathtaking.
 

CD Reviews

Delectable late works of Brahms
Adrian | Gold Coast, Australia | 07/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These intensely personal pieces requires a great Brahms pianist. Antony Gray turns these works into pure poetry, with a kaleidoscopic range of colours and voicing's. This set is preferable to Nicholas Angelich's who lacks colour and variety."
