Path to perfection

When in 1851 Robert Schumann, in an article in the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik entitled »Neue Bahnen«, praised the then 20-year-old Johannes Brahms as the one who was »called upon to express the highest expression of the time in an ideal manner«, he could not have known how right he would ultimately be, nor could he have foreseen how much the claim thus made would initially inhibit the young composer from Hamburg. In 1855 - a year before Schumann's death - he began composing three piano quartets, of which the mercilessly self-critical artist allowed the first two to mature until 1863 before publishing them as his Opera 25 and 26 (he did not even release the third to the public until 1875). Elisabeth Leonskaja and members of the Staatskapelle Berlin now let the perfection of these two works shine.
