It is important to me to let my interpretation work spontaneously, almost improvisationally, with all due care in the rehearsal. Ilona Eibenschütz, a student of Clara Schumann, who Brahms got to know personally and who visited him during his summer stay in Bad Ischl, was allowed to hear his operas 118 and 119 from the composer himself. In her memories he describes his piano playing as “very free – as if he was improvising – with heart and soul …”
During the recording, I wanted to make these two aspects tangible: the loneliness and introvertedness on the one hand and the openness to the spontaneous in sound and On the other hand, tempo shaping. No feeling, no pain can be felt and described in the same way every day.
With this in mind, I have sought the balance between faithfulness to the musical text and the artist’s artistic freedom.
