Aus unendlichen Sehnsüchten steigen
endliche Taten wie schwache Fontänen,
die sich zeitig und zitternd neigen.
Aber, die sich uns sonst verschweigen,
unsere fröhlichen Kräfte – zeigen
sich in diesen tanzenden Tränen.


R.M.Rilke, 1902



Beginning in late 2018, I felt the irresistible urge to expand a song by Brahms that was occupying me excessively. It was too short to play as an encore, so I decided to expand it in the manner of the Liszt-Schubert Soirees de Vienne. From this grew the desire to continue with other works by Brahms, to learn more about his music in the process and to relate to the spirit of longing that seems to fill it. I make no pretensions as to the musical depth and value of these works of mine, they are merely musings and experiments that I am sharing with whoever wishes to listen.
