BRAHMS Piano Sonata No. 3 in f. Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel
Thanks to his self-founded label Medici Classics, Jerome Rose has once again, in addition to his various pedagogical activities, come to the consciousness of piano lovers. Known as a Liszt specialist, he recently also released recordings with music of Schumann, Beethoven, and Schubert: expressive and with his own vision. This is also what his Brahms interpretation sounds like. The dynamics and rhythm are handled in a generous, spontaneous, and flexible manner - and yet, or exactly because of it, his personality shows through.
