Chopin and Brahms, two of the most significant personalities of romantic pianism, in contrast to each other. The constructivism of German, always attentive to the lesson of his fellow countryman Bach, is counterbalanced by the languid expressiveness of the work of the Polish emigrant to Paris. Two different ways of conceiving a single historical period: that nineteenth century in which the artist felt free to express his feelings, free from any pre-organized form and to give free rein to his admirable art.
J. Brahms, Klavierstücke, op. 118.
F. Chopin, Barcarolle, op. 60
Polonaise-Fantaisie, op. 61
Deux Nocturnes, op. 62
