“I’ve enjoyed all of Mari Kodama’s previous albums, and certainly this one is no exception. New Paths is a musical exploration of the relationship of a young Brahms with Robert Schumann and his wife, Clara. Presented are Brahms’ First Piano sonata, his Variations on a Theme by Robert Schumann, and Clara Schumann’s arrangement of Robert’s Song, Windmung.

Fabulous, and heartfelt music making, beautifully recorded!”
