Brahms and FriendsHTGCD252 – 5060332660322

At the heart of this recording is Brahms’ imposing third piano sonata but it is the works composed by his circle of friends, in particular Grimm, Kirchner and Dietrich which give this disc its uniqueness. Dirk Joeres gives highly acclaimed performances.

‘Joeres is gifted with both a technique that is precise yet unmechanical and musicianship in which virtuosity is tempered by intelligence.’
