Brahms wrote his two Sonatas op 120 during the Summer of 1984. These works have since come to be considered as some of the finest chamber music written by the German composer. Along with Mozart's clarinet quintets, these works are also thought of as some of the most important pieces in the clarinet repertoire. In addition to these influential works by Brahms, this release includes Alban Berg's Sonata for piano Op. 1, and Four pieces for clarinet and piano op 5. The two artists, clarinetist Vincenzo Paci and pianist Jakub Tchorzewski, present in this release a special and unique live recording which was taken in April 2014 at "La Fenice" theater in Venice.
