You want to look over the shoulder of a famous composer? The piano duo Olha Chipak and Oleksiy Kushnir make it possible on their new GENUIN album: Johannes Brahms later re-worked his sonata for two pianos into the famous piano quintet. And the two pianists present this sonata, much more than a mere preparatory work, with all his passion and with such technical poise that you do not miss the timbre of the strings at all – and the orchestral colors of the Haydn variations provided by two sets of 88 keys with equal brilliance! The seldom-played variations on a theme by Schumann are, after all, a melancholy homage on the loss of his friend – the spirit of Schumann and Brahms combined. Repertoire value and sound: magnificent!
