At the heart of this Viktoria Mullova two-fer is the first disc of Brahms's three sonatas for violin and piano, here played with Piotr Anderszewski. It is an inspired partnership - both artists show an understanding of and passion for Brahm's unique style of romanticism. While Suk and Katchen remain my favorites, Mullova and Anderzewski have enough interesting things to say in this music that I am happy to have both.

Brahms almost completely rewrote his Trio Op. 8 35 years after its first performance – yet the rarely performed original version (recorded here) is a splendid example of the impetuous, fantastical universe of the young composer. Similarly, his intense self-criticism meant it took him 19 years to produce the definitive version of his Piano Quartet Op.60, perhaps the freest and most intimate of his three works for these forces.

Acclaimed for its extraordinarily sensitive style, almost telepathic understanding of each other and technical mastery, the Trio Wanderer is one of the world's foremost chamber ensembles. This program contains Brahms's Piano Trio No.1 and Piano Quartet No.3. Composed during 1854 and revised in 1889, the first trio is the only work by Brahms to exist in two published versions. Here, Trio Wanderer treats us to the rarely heard original score.

These two performances derive from a concert given at the 16th International Pharos Chamber Music Festival, Cyprus, in 2016. The performers involved clearly play together regularly, certainly at Pharos, apart from their impressive individual credentials. Some, like Yevgeny Sudbin and Alexander Chausian, have well established partnerships on record.

Maurizio Pollini's 2011 concert recording of Johannes Brahms' Piano Concerto No. 1 in D minor is an important document because it not only captures his return to playing with the esteemed Staatskapelle Dresden (his first performance with the group since 1986), and his first collaboration with conductor Christian Thielemann, but it presents the very work the pianist played at his Staatskapelle debut in 1976. All of this background is helpful to know, to understand the significance Deutsche Grammophon attaches to this release, even at the risk of offering a CD that runs just over 45 minutes, without any filler for added value.

Max Bruch’s compositions shine the last lights of German romanticism. Following in the footsteps of Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms, Bruch persisted in defending a melodic line inspired by popular culture, “one can only hope in these times that are hostile to melody”.

As a glance at the above will show, this is not the old Beaux Arts version, for whose restoration I made a plea two years ago, but a new digital account recorded with their new cellist, Peter Wiley and in a different acoustic The Maltings, Snape. In their old version they omitted the fugue (Var. 8), a practice sanctioned by the score (the Borodin on Chandos curiously enough, cut out the variation preceding it) but this time round the players restore it. However, they do make the traditional cut in the finale (bar 9 of page 86 to bar 4 of page 102 Eulenburg score).

This program of Western classical masterpieces from Brahms and Grieg highlight the virtuosic beauty of staple pieces in the piano solo repertoire. Programming these two composers together enables listeners to hear the similarities between these two seemingly very different classical icons.
