For its second recording for Cypres, Kheops immerses us in works that give pride of place to the clarinet, an instrument whose expressive possibilities fascinated the most original creators in the Habsburg capital at the turn of the 20th century. Brahms's Trio op. 114, dominated by autumnal colors, is an end-of-life work, imbued with a form of renunciation and resignation. The early Four Pieces op. 5 exude a striking expressiveness, the kind of expressiveness that Alban Berg preserved across styles and compositional techniques. And in his Trio op. 3, Alexander von Zemlinsky, who makes no secret of his admiration for the Brahms piece, develops an intense and tumultuous harmonic universe that marks the generational leap between them Kheops, a variable-geometry group combining winds and strings under the sign of individual virtuosity at the service of the collective, radiates maturity and carries chamber music high in Belgium.
