I can't believe you included Brahms's piano quintet in F minor! It's probably my favourite piece of chamber music; it is so powerful, intense and complex. This is a really good version (by the Takács Quartet) that I haven't heard before.

(I might be thinking about this way too much but..) the way I see it, this mix begins with lightness and searching, moves into a more impressionistic, hazy glow and then sweeps into burning fire in the middle, before gradually growing lighter and airier with the impressions of Debussy once more..ending in the familiarity and sweetness of Beethoven's candlelit-warm sounds.

love your choice of composers! but the most of this mix I like how perfectly Mitsuko Uchida played Claude Debussy. black and white expression on cover discords with light, dreamy impressionist melodies. too short for this beauty!

Thank you for the kind words! And I agree, Uchida's performances of Debussy and Orsini's artwork are both magical.
