In 1933, Arnold Schönberg defined ‘Brahms the Progressive’ as the initiator of a free language: ‘He was a great innovator in the area of musical language.’ This disc covers the composer’s entire life, starting with the Variations op. 9, composed at the age of just 20 years, then touching the middle period of his production with the Rhapsodies op. 79, and finishing with compositions which constitute his farewell to the piano: the Fantaisies op. 116 and the Klavierstücke op. 119, written when he was in his sixties.
