Isabelle Faust plays Brahms

The violinist Isabelle Faust is one of those musicians who do not content themselves with the score when dealing with a work. It was only when reading Brahms' letters that she gradually developed a feeling for the intimacy of his violin concerto, she once said. No wonder, she enjoys playing with the conductor Philippe Herreweghe: He, too, is one of the thinkers among musicians; moreover, he is one of the most important representatives of historically informed performance practice, which Faust is also passionately interested in. With Brahms, the two are not only concerned with a transparent sound - but also with a deep symbiosis between the soloist and the small orchestra.
