Brahms: unwrapped; re-conceived; distilled.
Firmly established as one of the world’s leading viola players, Maxim Rysanov performs his own transcriptions of two of Brahms’ best-loved chamber works alongside Aurora principals. These gems set the stage for the first Serenade: a masterpiece of boundless invention and rich colour heard here in the chamber orchestration for which it was originally conceived.
