BRAHMS HANDEL VARIATIONS III
Variations and Fugue on a theme by Handel, Op 24



This page, Brahms Handel Variations III, offers even more outstanding performances of this great work for piano by one of my small handful of desert island composers.  I have spread them over three pages to reduce the otherwise long download time.  My own favorites appear on all three pages. And just because I have not singled one out does not mean I don't think it especially good.

Included on this page is an exquistely lovely performance by the young Russian pianist, Sofia Vasheruk.  This is yet another Brahms that I will make it my business to get to know.

The Brahms Handel Variations III page offers performances by pianists born from 1944 to 1992. To access the other pages click on the following links:
