“….Fischer and Müller-Schott are absolutely on the same musical wavelength delivering a blisteringly intense performance supported by outstandingly responsive playing from the Netherlands Philharmonic.” Erik Levi, BBC Music Magazine
“….Some soloists tinge the piece with mellow fruitfulness; this duo aims for spring freshness. Each player strikes sparks off the other; the electric charge is formidable. Forget the myth of Brahms the dull dog; he’s not to be found anywhere on this disc. “
Geoff Brown, The Times
Most importantly, Fischer and Daniel Müller-Schott form a true partnership, responding to each other with a chamber music responsiveness that leads the ear on irresistibly. There is a vital imperativeness about their music-making and total immersion in Brahms’s elusive sound-world that convinces utterly. Whether coupled together or considered individually, the performances on this disc are very special indeed and deserve the widest currency.
