Capriccios & Intermezzos – Nada and Brahms (double CD)

Released by MEII Enterprises on October 26, 2018, “Capriccios & Intermezzos: Nada & Brahms,” is a 25-track double album, the fourth in a series of albums featuring award-winning Pianist Nada’s recordings of Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) works for solo piano. “I chose to call this recording ‘Capriccios & Intermezzos’ to display the wonderful variety and array of colors and moods in his music: passion/reflection, power/sweetness, brilliance/intimacy, craziness/centeredness, organization/wilderness,” says Pianist Nada.

“Two chorales Op. 122 originally for organ, begin this fascinating journey through Brahms’ music… This is her fourth foray into Brahms, and her most successful… The Schumann Variations are excellent, with sterling fingerwork and a reluctance to over-pedal. The etude after Chopin Op. 25/2 written when Brahms was just 19, is beautiful and evinces more perfectly judged pedal…”

Nada Meets Johannes Brahms

On September 20, 2017 MEII Enterprises released “Nada Meets Johannes Brahms,” the third album in a series of several planned albums featuring award-winning Nada’s recordings of Brahms works for solo piano.

“Pianist Nada’s playing sounds effortlessly natural, the rubato unforced on the one hand and unrestrained on the other, nothing exaggerated yet fully realized. And what sensitive attention to the varied textures! This selection and performance of Brahms is something I will treasure and learn from as I listen to it many times.”
– Frank Richmond, composer, pianist, music director of Thomas Jefferson Unitarian Church, Louisville, KY, USA

Nada & Brahms

Vienna: Brahms & Nada

New CD available now! Official international release, May 7th, 2017. “Nada is a pianist of poetic depth, great artistry and rich musical insight. She performs with brilliant technique and gives to each work a profound interpretation. Her Brahms is sublime, she fully inhabits these works and brings out their many subtle layers of musical beauty – a truly world class and original artist.”

“a true Brahms advocate”
– Audiophile Audition, May 2017

“….The boldness and commitment of her playing is evident right away in the 2nd Rhapsody that opens the program…both Rhapsodies come across as monumental works…Nada’s playing with strong feeling, savoring the music…”

On Variations Op. 21, No. 1,
“I prefer Nada’s distinctive, personal take on the music…”
– Fanfare Magazine, Nov/Dec 2017

“…impeccable and beautiful…the Waltzes are nicely shaded and show a real grasp of the set…”

Nada in Hamburg with Johannes Brahms

“What I find particularly persuasive and spellbinding, really, about Nada’s performance is the crystalline purity of her tone and transparency of her voicing. There’s such clarity to her playing and in the recording of her Yamaha piano, captured by engineer Adam Copelin in Louisville’s TNT Studios, that one has the feeling of being a page-turned sitting right by Nada’s side.

This is a gorgeous Brahms piano program from beginning to end, one that largely avoids duplicating many of the composer’s more familiar works encountered on so many discs, and one that showcases the talent of a heretofore probably unfamiliar pianist to most readers in the exceptional playing and artistry of Nada.”

– Fanfare Magazine (November 2016)
