Music for Mid-July
These two composers produced an abundance of beautiful music. This includes delightful Madrigals by Monteverdi, which make for perfect music for a summer day. Piano Sonatas and Violin Concertos constitute key genres in which Brahms composed: try this recording of his concertos performed by the talented and thought-provoking violinist Isabelle Faust. If you're in the mood for more chamber music - ideal for the summer months - then we recommend these pieces by Joseph Haydn and Heinrich Ernst.
