Matthias Kirschnereit:
Hummel, Weber, Mendelssohn - Works for Piano and Orchestra


With over 40 CD releases to his credit, Matthias Kirschnereit is known for his inventiveness and initiative in exploring unfamiliar terrain. This programme centres on music for piano and orchestra from the last days of the Classical era, on the cusp of the Romantic - rarely heard on the concert platform: Hummel’s Piano Concerto in A minor is flanked by Weber’s Konzertstück and Mendelssohn’s Capriccio brillant.

Andrea Kauten:
Promenade


This album brings together two prominent romantic piano cycles: Chopin's Preludes Op. 28 and Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition. In the zone of tension between European art music and various eastern European traditions, both of these large-scale cycles are united by beautifully defined miniatures. Chopin, like Mussorgsky, had developed a highly personal musical language - they overlap to some extent on their individual paths to the modern era.

Jonas Vitaud:
Beethoven 1802


In 1802, Beethoven went to the village of Heiligenstadt in order to care for his hearing and calm his nerves. He would stay there from April to October, but observed no improvement, which triggered a personal crisis of unprecedented intensity. At the same time, the composer was reaching new creative heights in every important genre - illustrated by the extraordinary variety and richness of inspiration of the works on this disc.

Viviana Lasaracina:
Granados - Goyescas


In 1909 Granados started to work on the suite which would become one of the most important works for piano in the Spanish repertoire. Granados dedicated the pieces of the suite to the greatest pianists of the time: Emil von Sauer, Eduard Risler, Ricardo Viñes, Harold Bauer, Alfred Cortot. His favourite, Quejas, was dedicated to his wife Amparo, who would die with him in the tragic sinking of the ship that was taking them back to Spain after the American success of his opera Goyescas, in 1916.
