Com­pan­ions of Art by Sophia Jaf­fé and Björn Lehmann
July 2023

Clara Schu­mann and Johannes Brahms were bound togeth­er for four decades by a great artis­tic friend­ship. They shared a com­mon inter­est and exchanged ideas on a per­son­al and artis­tic lev­el. The vio­lin­ist Sophia Jaf­fé and the pianist Björn Lehmann have been duo part­ners for many years and are now putting all their expe­ri­ence and love for Brahms and Schu­mann into a new GENUIN CD. The pro­gram includes the three vio­lin sonatas by Johannes Brahms and three vio­lin romances by Clara Schu­mann – con­ceiv­ably dif­fer­ent works in their scope, yet relat­ed in their view of the world and art: roman­tic trea­sures, record­ed with dedication!

“Dichter­liebe” released on Deutsche Grammophon!

Schumann’s haunt­ing song cycle “Dichter­liebe” was new­ly com­posed by the Ger­man com­pos­er and con­duc­tor Chris­t­ian Jost and record­ed by the Horen­stein Ensem­ble for Deutsche Grammophon.
It links Jost’s work with a record­ing of Schumann’s orig­i­nal and his Liederkreis­es op. 39, with the late mez­zo-sopra­no Stel­la Doufexis.
Jost’s Dichter­liebe, sung by the Dan­ish tenor Peter Lodahl and the Horen­stein Ensem­ble, was com­mis­sioned by the Konz­erthaus Berlin and the Copen­hagen Opera Festival.
It pre­miered in Octo­ber 2017 in Berlin.
