Forte ma dolce

Johannes Brahms | L’œuvre pour orgue 

Diapason, Diapason d'or

One of the most poignant meditations on death, in which despair is mixed with confidence in God, forte ma dolce. ‘Forte ma dolce: such is Brahms’s direction at the beginning of his Eleven chorales, one of his last compositions. And such is the title of François Ménissier’s cycle Four Serious Songs. A dark atmosphere, yet softened by a twilight glow. A brilliant reading yet full of emotion.’ Diapason

François Ménissier, orgue
