The Brahms vocal compositions (for their quality and abundance - over 400 of them) made Brahms a "worthy heir to Beethoven" in Germany, throughout Europe, and finally in France, where Ravel was the first and one of the few to admire "the beauty in his melodic ideas, their quality of expression and above all the brilliance of his orchestral language". Schoenberg also later praised the innovation of his musical language in his Style and Idea. The excellence of Brahms' work was summed up by Joseph Joachim, the celebrated Hungarian violinist, composer and conductor who worked with Brahms, and who described his music as "pure as a diamond, soft as the snow". Schumann also praised the serenity and optimism of the tone with which Brahms ended his most sombre and tormented pieces: "Over choppy waves finally a rainbow shimmers, as the nightingale's song accompanies the capricious flight of the butterfly". This album compiles some of the most important vocal & orchestral works that best define the German composer.
