Brahms's Zigeunerlieder for chorus and piano were a late composition. Unlike in the Hungarian Dances, the Hungarian musical elements are hinted at rather than explicit. This recording with the Cherwell Singers was made in the recently built Jacqueline du Pré Music Building in Oxford. The sound is extremely dry and analytical. There was a gale blowing, and although we couldn't hear it, there were obviously big drafts in the hall, which produce obvious rumble, because I don't normally use a windshield indoors... Or maybe it's someone kicking the floor.
