Week of January 21st
Brahms: Hungarian Dances
Sabrina-Vivian Höpcker, Fabio Bidini
Growing up in Hamburg, Brahms probably heard the Gypsy orchestras famous for their “Hungarian” dance tunes. Our Album of the Week is filled with the high-spirited melodies and emotional depth Brahms wrote into his own Hungarian Dances. This version for violin and piano was arranged by Brahms’ friend Joseph Joachim and played brilliantly by violinist Sabrina-Vivian Hopcker and pianist Fabio Bidini.
