Roland Barthes called them “fragments of a language of love”: forms of intimacy, affection and desire, but also of desperation, dependency and ruin. Magdalena Kožená and Yefim Bronfman close in on these characterisations of love with songs composed by Johannes Brahms, Modest Mussorgsky, Dmitri Shostakovich and Béla Bartók.
