Hi Daniel,

I've been pressed for time tonight, but went to my favorite, No. 4. This piece is truly a romance and you played it with artistry in my opinion. You made the cantabile line sing, you were especially expressive in the gentle flow of the music, and created much beauty with your nuances. Thanks for posting it!

David

Thanks, David. Number 4 is also my favourite. I have to say that it took a quite a while and some help from an excellent pianist and wonderful teacher, Gotthard Kladetzky in Cologne, Germany, to get it sort of right.

Cheers

Daniel

My first teacher used to refer to Brahms as "this mature composer". But she wasn't referring to his age; rather, his insights, concepts of composing, and musical style. I especially like the burnished sound found in so many of his works.

Thank you Daniel for this beautiful rendition. Since the time where I discovered Brahms' ballads by the great Michelangeli, I have wanted to learn them. Hearing your version gives me furthermore motivation. It is nice to have such a set of pieces on PS server, available for anyone ! Regards,
