Andrea Kauten – Götz / Brahms Piano Concerts
Artist: Andrea Kauten
Title: Goetz: Klavierkonzert Nr.2 B-Dur op.18 & Brahms Klavierkonzert Nr. 1 d-moll op. 15
Catalogue No.: SM 284 (2 CDs)
With piano concerto no. 1 in d minor op. 15 by Johannes Brahms and piano concerto no. 2 in b major op. 18 by Hermann Goetz, pianist Andrea Kauten juxtaposes the works of two masters, who strike the musical-historical situation in the vacuum of the Beethoven succession illuminate in the second half of the 19th century. Both composers see themselves as traditionalists who want to create something new in proven forms. There is, on the one hand, the genre of a young composer who, early on, too soon as a harbinger of hope, mercilessly fails the work. And second, the work of a regionally recognized talent, which can attract the attention of the great German music world before his untimely death.
