This collection of five of Brahms’s chamber music masterpieces includes four with piano and all of these feature the supreme artistry of András Schiff. Both the quintets – for clarinet and for piano – are included; the recording of the Clarinet Quintet with Peter Schmidl with members of the New Vienna Octet, receives its first release on CD. The rarest of the chamber works on this collection is the set of Variations on a Theme of Robert Schumann. Composed in 1854 for piano four-hands, Brahms’s biographer Malcolm MacDonald called it a ‘special act of solace’ for Clara Schumann, to whom they were dedicated. In fact, the title page reads, ‘Minor Variations on a Theme by Him, Dedicated to Her’. Here, Schiff is joined by his Hungarian compatriot Sir Georg Solti, at the piano. Also representing Hungary on this collection is the Takács Quartet.

“The eloquent soaring clarinet line of the openingphrase immediately sets the seal on what is to be a passionately committed reading throughout […] the element of nostalgia is not missing, with the Adagio tenderly eloquent from clarinet and strings alike.” Gramophone Magazine, October 1981 (Clarinet Quintet)

“the sonority remains warm and full, and in the clarinet trio balance could scarcely be bettered. It would certainly be hard to imagine lovelier reproduction of Dolezal’s burnished cello … the atmosphere is seductively Viennese, warm and relaxed … The sound and balance seems to me, virtually ideal” Gramophone Magazine (Clarinet & Horn Trios)

“glowing piano and string tone” Gramophone Magazine (Piano Quintet)

with Fabio di Càsola (clarinet)


Ophélie Gaillard (cello) & Louis Schwizgebel-Wang (piano)

Brahms's important output of 24 chamber scores dominated the second half of the 19th century, as that of Beethoven had dominated the first half. His corpus was thus a response to that of Beethoven, his model, and to that of Mendelssohn, who was likewise born in Hamburg and also composed two cello sonatas. In 1890, aged only 57, Brahms resolved to give up composing but he had reckoned without the inspiration that his meeting with the Meiningen clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld was to have on his creative imagination. He subsequently added four scores for clarinet to his output, including this Trio Op. 114.

Louis Schwizgebel-Wang was awarded 2nd prize at the Leeds Piano Competition 2012.

“Gaillard has always displayed an extraordinary palette of colours and these some alive more than ever on this recording...the voyage into earlier repertoire since her last such disc...seems to have informed her playing with even more subtlety than before.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2013

Mandelring Quartett


Laura Ruiz Ferreres (clarinet)

This recording of the complete chamber music works for clarinet by Johannes Brahms is presented with first-rate interpreters: Laura Ruiz Ferreres, one of the most gifted clarinettists of her generation, and pianist Christoph Berner.

Internationally renowned cellist Danjulo Ishizaka and the Mandelring Quartet complete the superb line-up of instrumentalists for this recording.

At the end of his career, when he had already made his will, Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) was enthused by an instrument which was mainly familiar as an indispensable component of the romantic orchestra: the clarinet. However, since Mozart and Weber, chamber music for clarinet had been somewhat neglected. If it had not been for Richard Mühlfeld, the exceptionally gifted virtuoso of the Meiningen Court Orchestra, who was the source of inspiration for four chamber music works for clarinet between 1891 and 1894, Brahms might never again have written any music. However, the melancholy North German had a predilection for the noble middle register and expressive 'speaking' tone of the clarinet, of which he makes full use in all four works. Whilst the Trio Op. 114 with piano and cello has always been regarded as a subtly constructed work for connoisseurs, the Quintet Op. 115 with the accompaniment of a string quartet is a miraculous blend of sound and passionate lyricism. Alongside the Clarinet Sonatas Op.120, these late chamber works with clarinet constituted a veritable renaissance which continues to the present day.

“The focal point of this collection is the Spanish clarinettist Laura Ruiz Ferreres...All the attributes of a fine clarinettist are there - agility, lovely woody tone in the lower register, rising through a rich middle to a piercing top - and these are allied with a most satisfying musical sense.” International Record Review, May 2013

Smetana Trio

New CD from BBC Music Magazine Award Winning Smetana Trio.

Following on from the recording of the complete trios of Antonin Dvořak (Supraphon), the renowned and critically acclaimed Smetana Trio have taken the logical step of recording a Johannes Brahms album of the same ilk. As a pianist, Brahms earned admiration back in his childhood and later on many occasions even premiered his own pieces. Almost four decades span the first trio Brahms wrote, at the age of twenty, and the last. Besides piano trios in the traditional configuration, he composed a trio for horn and a trio for clarinet. The sound of the horn, an instrument Brahms himself played, was reputedly loved by the composer’s mother and he wrote the horn trio as a response to her death. Brahms created the clarinet trio for the celebrated clarinettist Richard Muhlfeld, whom the composer esteemed immensely.

The Smetana Trio’s guests on the new recording are the outstanding clarinettist Ludmila Peterkova and the superlative horn player Přemysl Vojta, winner of the ARD Munich competition (2010) and holder of a Beethoven Ring. Brahms with the tenderness and engrossing romantic expressiveness of the Smetana Trio.

Recorded at the Martinek Studio, Prague, June 2011 (Trios Nos 2&3, Clarinet Trio) and June 2012 (Trio No. 1, Horn Trio).

“Overall, these musicians have an especially strong and fine sense of line. The Horn Trio is full of echt-Romantic vistas and half-lights...The Clarinet Trio is a revelation: not at all the austere, reserved piece it often seems, but deeply poetic and full of late autumnal colours.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2013 ****

“there is spontaneous engagement with the music and such a heroic sweep to the playing...(Peterkova's clarinet playing in the Op. 114 Trio is absolutely magical)...The Smetana Trio is thus at or near the top of my short-list of relatively recent recordings of these glorious works.” International Record Review, May 2013

“What the Smetana may lack in polish they make up for in exciting raw edged playing. This rather sets them apart from other ensembles.” MusicWeb International, April 2013
