Two dissimilar sisters look out at us from this new GENUIN chamber music CD: Johannes Brahms’ last chamber works - his Clarinet Sonatas. Whether in E-flat major or F minor: the autumnal colouration does not let go of the listener when the velvety clarinet tone of Nicole Kern surrounds him and when Stefano Vismara piles up stormy block chords. Perhaps Brahms was never more modern and never more himself than in these two Sonatas. The two musicians allow us to sense the Brahmsian pangs of farewell at every moment, perhaps also the pain of a past era, a blown-away century. This is indeed a darkly luminous piece of good fortune for an evening long before the beginning of spring …

"... with powerful colours and defiantly rebellious piano playing with which the young German clarinettist Nicole Kern fits in congenially...both absorbed contemplation and vital rebellion succeed here convincingly ..." (Ensemble 3/2008)
