During the last 7 years of his life Johannes Brahms dedicated himself to chamber music and many people would agree that in this period he produced the most profound music in his entire writing career. While at Bad Ischl, his constant encounters with J. Strauss, but also with the great clarinetist Richar Mühlfeld, inspired Brahms to produce such fine examples of the chamber music repertoire known today. The 2 clarinet sonatas, which he also transcribed for the viola, are quite melancholic in comparison with the other clarinet opuses which he wrote just before. Brahms was also deeply saddened by the sudden loss of his great friend and muse Clara Schumann. As they shared wonderful long term artistic and personal relationship, quite possibly they influenced each other in their composing as well. The project “Brahms Alliance” is inspired by the friendship and legacy of those 2 much celebrated composers with the addition of the remarkable singer and composer Pauline Viardot who is represented in the project by her lovely 6 pieces for violin and piano (version for viola). The trio Schumann, Brahms, Viardot is to represent the mutual inspiration those composers felt at the time of their lives for the remarkable and unforgettable music they left behind for generations.
