Variaties op een thema van Haydn, 'St Anthoni Chorale' op. 56a


A serious approach to Brahms's First unfolds with naturalness and dignity.
On the pure orchestral front Weller (long of vienna but now based in Brussels) is notably sensitive to the Haydn variations' rich variety.Whether suitably pensive in the flow of Var 5, vivacious in Var 6's game of tag or warmly affectionate in the haunting grazioso of Var8, he remains an outstanding Brahmsian.
(Bryce Morrison, Gramophone nr. 1067 februari 2011, p. 64)
