ArtistsAlexandre Kantorow (piano)
Opening with an example of the mature Brahms, his First Rhapsody from 1879, Kantorow takes us back to the very beginning of the composer’s career, with the youthfully impassioned Piano Sonata no.2. Brahms was 21 when he wrote the sonata – only two years younger than Bartók in 1904, the year his Rhapsody was composed. At the time, Bartók was just beginning to discover the folk music which would become such an important source of inspiration. Being a Hungarian and a budding pianist, he was, however, very familiar with the music of Liszt, and will have known the composer’s Hungarian Rhapsody no.11 with its final prestissimo rushing the disc to an impetuous close.
