Ferdinand Thieriot (1836-1919) was, like Johannes Brahms, a student of Eduard Marxsen in Hamburg; Brahms remained a friend in later years — and Thieriot's music does indeed have a Brahmsian warmth and richness. His works, the chamber music especially, was popular during his own lifetime but since his death in 1919 it has been totally forgotten — not least because the archives containing his manuscripts were taken to Leningrad after the Second World War. It is time to rediscover this generous and big-hearted music, which overflows with memorable melodies.

Jerry Dubins :
“Thieriot distinguished himself mainly in the field of chamber music… His Piano Quintet on the Toccata CD can easily stand with the more famous piano quintets of Schumann, Dvořák, and Brahms.” —Jerry Dubins, Fanfare
