Collins Classics is a highly respected classical label formed by Pinnacle Entertainment in 1989 and now owned by Phoenix Music International. Featuring recordings from renowned London orchestras including the London Philharmonic, London Symphony and Consort of London, Collins Classics' catalogue covers a wide range of musical works from Bach to Britten and Shostakovich to Sibelius. The label’s 130 albums form a small yet important part of recorded music history.
You know the drill by now. Once every two months, we take a great Classical composer, transform his portrait into a work of pop-art beauty even Andy Warhol would envy and brand them under the slogan ‘Classical & Chill’.
Well, now it’s the turn of Mr Johannes Brahms to step into the makeover chair as Collins Classics is pleased to present ‘Brahms and Chill’.
With the album travelling through the light and shade of the great German composer’s turbulent emotions, get whipped into a frenzy by ‘Hungarian Dance No.5 in G Minor’ or take it slow with the first of his ‘3 Intermezzos’.
