Brahms & Joachim: Hungarian Dances

Brahms & Joachim: Hungarian Dances


Brahms:

Hungarian Dances, WoO 1 Nos. 1-21 (complete)

arranged by Joseph Joachim

Joachim:

Variations in E minor


Hagai Shaham (violin) & Arnon Erez (piano)

The forty-year friendship between Brahms and Joseph Joachim, violinist and composer, was one of the most significant and fruitful relationships in nineteenth-century music. Their admiration of each other’s artistry was profound and unwavering, and bore sustained creative fruit on Brahms’s side of which his Violin Concerto and Double Concerto are only the most famous examples.

Joachim’s transcriptions of Brahms’s famous Hungarian Dances – originally written for piano duet or solo piano – are technically challenging for any violinist, and superbly idiomatic, constituting a kind of gypsy ‘Art of the Violin’. They represent the summit of Brahms’s ‘Hungarian’ art, and Joachim’s powers of transcription match them with violin writing of the greatest fastidiousness and authentic feeling. The brilliant Hagai Shaham, acclaimed for his recordings of Hubay, is the ideal performer.

“Joseph Joachim's violin arrangements of Brahms's Hungarian Dances more often than not appear singly as concert encores, so it is good to have the whole set presented here, and especially in virtuoso performances from the Israeli violinist Hagai Shaham that get to the heart of the style. If in musical terms Joachim's own set of variations pales by comparison, this is hardly the fault of Shaham, nor of his expert duo partner Arnon Erez: the playing fizzes with energy and suavity.” The Telegraph, 24th May 2008

“Hagai Shaham and Arnon Erez complement each other perfectly here, evincing fire, fury, and sweet sadness.” BBC Music Magazine, July 2008 *****

“This is a magnificent… Shaham and Erez… playing together with such ease that it's easy to forget the art and care that have gone into achieving such beautiful ensemble.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2008

Serenade No. 2 in A Major, Op. 16


“The two Serenades are perhaps often overlooked pieces in Brahms's output, but this recording conducted by Claudio Abbado makes you wonder why! The Berlin Philharmonic play with real warmth. These works are complemented by performances of the Academic Festival and Tragic Overtures (also with the Berlin players), and a highly characterful set of Hungarian Dances, this time with the Vienna Philharmonic.” James Longstaffe, Presto Classical, November 2014
