Latest Piano Albums


Michael Korstick:
Beethoven – Piano Concertos 0–7

The title of this album will come across as strange for piano lovers accustomed to the "canon of the five piano concerti of Beethoven". Number 0 in this case is an early work without opus number and no surviving orchestration. No 6 is a single movement sketch of another concerto, and No 7 is Beethoven's arrangement of his own Violin Concerto for piano and orchestra. Michael Korstick is a highly productive pianist with more than 60 previous CD recordings and a repertoire of more than 130 piano concerti.

Francesco Piemontesi:
Schoenberg, Messiaen, Ravel – works for piano & orchestra

Though stylistically very different, all three works on this album have American connections: Ravel’s Concerto in G was his most successful attempt to integrate elements of American jazz into his own musical language; Schoenberg’s Piano Concerto was composed in Los Angeles, where Schoenberg was exiled after fleeing Europe; and Messiaen’s Oiseaux exotiques took as its inspiration a series of records of American birdsong.

Annabel Guaita:
Identities – Grieg, Hvoslef, Saeverud

The main work on this album is Ketil Hvoslef's Rondo con Variazioni (1970), is considered one of the most important contributions to Norwegian piano literature from the 20th century. The work is framed by piano pieces by Edvard Grieg and Harald Sæverud (Hvoslef's father), composers that the Norwegian-Spanish pianist Annabel Guaita grew up with. "When I turned 50, it was natural to look back. Who am I? What has shaped me as a musician? What is my identity as a practitioner?"
