Rob van de Laar (horn), Thomas Beijer (piano)

The young Dutch horn player Rob van de Laar, Principal Horn of the Mozarteum Salzburg, has just been awarded the Dutch Music Prize, The Netherlands’ highest state accolade in classical music. He makes his solo recording debut with ‘Heartfelt’ on Challenge Classics, an SACD of Romantic music by Brahms, Schumann, Schubert and the little-known Austrian composer Karl Pilss.

The disc opens with two of the great pieces of the German Romanticism for Horn. Brahms’ Horn Trio was composed in 1865, during a peaceful summer at Clara Schumann’s house in the Black Forest. Schumann wrote his Adagio and Allegro in 1849, one of a series of miniatures for different solo instruments and piano that he composed that year in Dresden. Schumann was among the first to explore the expanded possibilities offered by the new valve horn.

Schubert wrote his song ‘Auf dem Strom’ in 1828, the final year of his short life, to a text by Ludwig Rellstab. It was composed for a concert, at the Vienna Musikverein, marking the first anniversary of the death of Ludwig van Beethoven on 26 March. Schubert, who was a great admirer of Beethoven, saw his opportunity to compose a special song as an ode to the master, adding a dazzling part for the French horn.

The Viennese composer Karl Pilss (1902-1979) is perhaps best known among brass players, having written concertos for trumpet, horn and bass trombone, as well as a number of works for brass ensemble. The influences of Richard Strauss, Gustav Mahler and his composition teacher Franz Schmidt can be clearly heard in his music. The ‘Tre pezzi in forma di sonata’ date from 1924.

Brahms:

Horn Trio in E flat major, Op. 40

Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op. 115


Christopher Williams (piano)

The 19th century witnessed an almost insatiable demand for arrangements and transcriptions to be played on domestic pianos. Brahms himself wrote such works under the names GW Marks and Karl Würth but friends and colleagues also contributed. The violinist, pianist and conductor Paul Klengel, brother of the eminent cellist Julius, made solo piano versions of the Horn Trio and the Clarinet Quintet, transcribing with remarkable fidelity and sensitivity Brahms myriad expressive and technical demands.

Felix Klieser (horn), Andrej Bielow (violin), Herbert Schuch (piano)

Felix Klieser first began to take a serious interest in the Horn Trio of Johannes Brahms (1833–1897) at the age of thirteen. Back then he was just a junior student at the College of Music and Drama in Hanover. He bought several different recordings of the work, including one featuring the hornist Peter Damm, whom he was later to meet at a master class in Dresden. “I picked up quickly that Felix was extraordinarily talented. He was able to elicit from the horn a soft, warm sound, a distinctly Romantic horn tone,” says the former horn-player of the Dresden Staatskapelle in high praise of Klieser in the booklet text to the young musician’s new CD entitled “Horn Trios”, released on the Berlin Classics label on September 29, 2017. “The Brahms Trio is the pride of the horn literature,” according to Peter Damm, a view he shares with Felix Klieser. That led him to seek out other such works, perhaps even unknown literature from the horn trio genre. He came across the French composer Frederic Nicolas Duvernoy (1765–1838), who was hornist at the Paris Opera, Faure pupil Charles Koechlin (1867–1950) and the Mannheim-born Robert Kahn (1865–1951) who was hounded by the Nazis. The result is a programme of works spanning nearly 100 years of development of the horn trio, which bring Felix Klieser a further step towards his goal: to place the horn centre stage as a colourful and profoundly Romantic instrument. Such a plan requires the right chamber music partners, whom Felix Klieser has happily found: at the piano sits the outstanding and sensitive Herbert Schuch, while the violin is played by the Ukrainian ARD competition winner Andrej Bielow. “It was a wonderful experience for us to learn these pieces, some of them quite new to us, thereby expanding the scope of the chamber music genre in an exciting way,” enthuses Felix Klieser.

Violin Sonata No. 3 in D minor, Op. 108


Wolfgang Vladar, Bojidara Kouzmanova-Vladar, Magda Amara

Golden Viennese horn sound, full and at the same time tender piano and velvet, emotional violin sound and vibrato is the beginning of this recording which opens the gate to the powerful, romantic world of Johannes Brahms' music. Deep feelings and musical thoughts are presented with technical easiness, keeping the musical phrase and expression in the center of the listener's attention. The only idea this recording really shows off are Brahms' words "I speak through my music".
