About

This complete edition of the solo songs of Johannes Brahms is presented in a box of eleven CDs containing a booklet of more than a hundred pages – all at a special low price! All the song texts are available in German and English on the CPO website under this product as a pdf. The outstanding interpreters Juliane Banse, Iris Vermillion and Andreas Schmidt dedicate themselves with consummate vocal artistry to the composer’s many different song cycles, always with their loyal accompanist, the pianist Helmut Deutsch. Johannes Brahms preferred to compose individual songs or smaller groups of four or five songs and to gather them together under a single opus number. His unique selections of texts and combinations of songs never fail to fascinate us. Brahms always wanted to emphasize the independent literary value of his song sources and was particularly interested in the musical mediation of their atmospheric and emotional content. A highlight edition for song fans!
