Brahms / Clara Schumann

3 Romances op. 22
Lisa Batiashvili
Alice Sara Ott
Staatskapelle Dresden
Christian Thielemann

Where Batiashvili has the advantage over her peers, however, is in her close relationship with the orchestra here; this is her first recording with the Staatskapelle Dresden orchestra, of which she is "Capell-Virtuosin." It shows in her close work with conductor Christian Thielemann at the joints of Brahms' vast first-movement canvas, perhaps the most perfect marriage of sheer virtuosity with profound structural thinking in the history of music.
