BRAHMS' PIANOFORTE MUSIC
(Second Series)
Played by HOWARD-JONES
Fantasias
Intermezzo in B Flat Minor (Op. 117, No. 2); Intermezzo in E (Op. 116. No. 6); Capriccio in D Minor (Op. 116, No. 7)
THE first piece makes expressive use of harp-
Ike motifs ; the harmonies touch the spirit. of tenider reflection, in a mood almost of melancholy.
The other Intermezzo is pensive and tender in full, rich chords, at the start, breaks into a more lightly accompanied melody in the middle, takes on an impassioned note. and then, with the gentlest breathing, returns to its former mood. At the end there is a fond recollection of the middle tune, before the brief picture fades away.
The Capriccio surges along in agitation that nothing can assuage.
