Ferdinand Thieriot: Chamber Music, Volume Two

Catalogue No: TOCC0101
EAN/UPC: 5060113441010
Release Date: 2024-02-16
Composer: Ferdinand Thieriot
Artists: The Hamburg Chamber Players

The Hamburg-born Ferdinand Thieriot (1838–1919) not only shared a teacher – Eduard Marxsen – with Brahms; both composers use a very similar musical language, one which is richly melodic and effortlessly contrapuntal. The musicologist Wilhelm Altmann wrote that ‘Thieriot’s chamber music is without exception noble and pure. He writes with perfect command of form and expression’ – as the works on this second Toccata Classics volume prove, in their exquisite balance of depth and beauty.
