This performance by Detroit-born and -bred pianist Cynthia Raim stands with the finest recordings of Brahms' piano music ever made by the most echt Deutsche player. The 2008 collection, combining the mighty and majestic Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, the darkly tragic Three Intermezzi, and the soulful but subversive Eight Piano Pieces, is performed as brilliantly as could be hoped. Raim's technique is virtuosic, a prerequisite in the composer's tremendously difficult music, and her tone is nuanced, likewise a prerequisite in his immensely subtle keyboard writing.

The Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, Op. 24, is a work for solo piano written by Johannes Brahms in 1861. It consists of a set of twenty-five variations and a concluding fugue, all based on a theme from George Frideric Handel's Harpsichord Suite No. 1 in B♭ major, HWV 434. The great music writer Donald Tovey has ranked it among "the half-dozen greatest sets of variations ever written".
