The second album in Lars Vogt’s Brahms series with the Royal Northern Sinfonia includes the Second Piano Concerto, with Vogt directing from the keyboard. The concerto is combined with a solo piano work, Handel Variations, Op. 24, which was dedicated to Clara Schumann. This set of 25 variations and a fugue shows Brahms as a great successor to the tradition of piano variations exemplified by Mozart and Beethoven.
