About

Brahms had already decided to retire as a composer when, on a journey to Meiningen in 1891, he was inspired and challenged by clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld’s beautiful playing. The two Sonatas, op.120, are part of a late flowering that resulted in some of Brahms’s finest chamber music. Brahms himself explored these pieces beyond the clarinet, and Karl-Heinz Schütz’s arrangements are based on the composer’s own alternative versions, seeking out the ideal of two equally-matched instruments in constant dialogue. Also included is a selection of ‘songs without words’, further expanding the flute repertoire with arrangements of these much-loved Lieder.

No official arrangements for flute and piano of Brahms’s two wonderful sonatas Op.120 exist. Karl-Heinz Schütz’s own new adaptations combine the best from each available source to create world-premiere recordings that will be of interest to every flute player on the planet. The addition of new arrangements of nine of Brahms’s sublime song settings is the icing on an already highly attractive musical cake.

Booklet notes for this release have been written by pianist Maria Prinz, who is widely in demand as a soloist, recitalist and chamber musician, and who has performed this music in concert all over the world. Among numerous recordings she has made several Naxos discs with flautist Patrick Gallois, including arrangements of sonatas by Mozart (8573033) in which, ‘if you truly do appreciate Mozart, your mind will not wander, though it may approach heaven in the slow movement of K. 570’ (American Record Guide). This duo also recorded Variations on Folk Songs by Beethoven (8573337), which ‘have a lightness and playfulness that we generally don’t associate with this surly genius, and Gallois and Prinz obviously are having a tremendous amount of fun’ (Classical Net).
