When the listener of chamber music wants to understand 19th century music the way the audience of the era of Brahms and Schumann might possibly have received it, he is dependent on intense studies documenting the sources of the development of historical performance and of the contemporary construction of instruments as well as on the research of the development of musical expression in its social traditions and its course of steady progress. German pianist Mathias Weber, Spanish hornist Javier Bonet and Russian violinist Maxim Kosinov are indeed capable of sparing the listener of our days those meticulous, time-consuming studies, when – following the traditions of the 19th century – they authentically play Brahms‘ and Schumann‘s music on exactly those instruments the sound qualities of which the composers obviously had in mind while writing their works. With the mastery of experienced experts, well versed in historically informed performing, the three musicians succeed in approaching the sound ideal of the 19th century in such a way that the modern listener is sent on a time travel without gaining the impression to witness the resuscitation of a mere museum-like sound. Quite on the contrary, he experiences the music in such a straightforward and touching freshness that, even if he has been familiar with the works for ages, they will keep on revealing some new, delightful discoveries to him.
