Info for Brahms: Piano Sonata Op. 5 & 7 Fantasien, Op. 116
After his recent Schubert album, Adam Laloum pays a visit to Brahms: the young prodigy of the early 1850s immediately established himself as the worthy heir of Beethoven and Schumann with his dazzling Sonata no.3.
Almost forty years later, we find him just as wild and in no way mellowed - quite the contrary: he continues to explore new horizons in his Fantasias op.116, where recollections of the old masters of the classical keyboard mingle with incredibly modern intuitions.
