About the album

The second and final volume of “Brahms Beloved”, in which conductor John Axelrod pairs the Brahms symphonies (in     this set, the First and the Third) with songs by his muse,  Clara Schumann, will be released by Telarc on July 22, 2014.
Volume 1 inspired healthy debate among Brahmsians as to how deeply enmeshed the presence of Clara is in the songs of the man who always had a love for her, and this volume takes the discussion further with a fascinating booklet essay by Jan Swafford, author of the standard-­‐reference Brahms biography.

Keeping with the idea of using different voice-­‐types for each ‘set’ of Clara’s songs, the better to explore the notion of different sides of their composer’s character, this volume introduces our two final “Claras,” the great Lieder singers Dame Felicity Lott and, or the more masculine side of Clara, Wolfgang Holzmair. The orchestra is again the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi, of which John Axelrod is Principal Conductor, and Axelrod once more does double-­ duty as conductor and pianist.


In his forthcoming review of this album, music critic and Brahms specialist Jerry Dubins is as enthusiastic about this issue as he was about its predecessor. “Axelrod has already proven himself a master of Brahms with his previous release...Here, from the very first downbeat, one senses the shaping of  a performance by a master builder. Nor
does the performance lack for sheer beauty of playing by the Sinfonica di  Milano Giuseppe Verdi Orchestra – listen  to the sinuous  violin lines...the sylvan woodwind exchanges...the blazing brass in the grand finale[of  the First]...Addto this Michael Fine’s and Wolf-­‐Dieter Karwatky’s magnificent recorded sound...and you have  a pair of Brahms symphonies for the  ages."
