Johannes Brahms Late piano pieces, Op. 116 – 119

The late piano pieces of Brahms are, for the most part, intimately wrought miniatures, fascinating works that disregard both the performer and the listener. Christian Wilm Müller meets the unique stylistic challenges of these mature works with great sensitivity and radiance. The result is most convincing.
