  • Description

    Throughout his life Johannes Brahms composed songs, including several cycles for two or more vocalists.

    Accompanied by Doriana Tchakarova, Felicitas and Judith Erb now present the duets in a finely tuned Super Audio CD.

    With Magnus Dietrich, the ladies are joined by a truly youthful and radiant tenor for the clearly "male" pieces - a real asset, not only for the great ballads.

    For only about half of the duets are the performance with two singers compulsory; Brahms even expressly intended the "Romances and Songs" op. 84 for one or two singers.

    Felicitas and Judith Erb turn the tables and reinterpret many a Brahms song: "Der tote Gast", for example, or "Da unten im Tale", as well as the aforementioned "Schwesterlein", appear in
    a completely new light in the performance for two.

    On the Steinway concert grand "Manfred Burki" from 1901, Doriana Tchakarova performs the piano part with absolute certainty and a great sense for the intense mood of the individual
    works. From intimate to dramatic, from lyrical to sweeping, everything is there - a true listening pleasure, and not only in the
    three-dimensional reproduction.
