Fabian Müller plays Brahms – more authentic than ever before
He is one of Fabian Müller's favourite pianists. As a child it was Brahms who opened the cosmos of classical music to him and has astonished him again and again ever since. So it's no wonder that Müller decided to record this "anti-braggart music", which means so much to him.
"Actually, I didn't want to record the works until I was 50. But I couldn't wait that long," says the 28-year-old Müller. Why should I? For Idol Brahms was in his early twenties when he wrote his Ballads op. 10 for piano in 1854 and could already look back on a steep musical career.
On his new album we can now experience the Brahms piano works Opus 10, 76 and 117 with Fabian Müller in a youthful freshness and authenticity that combines youthful urge and renunciatory wisdom. Be sure to mark October in red so as not to miss the release.
