Schiff has changed foot in his views on period instruments and the recording can be seen as an ambitious attempt to scrutinize and fully bring out the true characteristics of Brahms' works.

Latest Piano Albums
Severin von Eckardstein:
Schumann - Davidsbündlertänze, Chopin - Polonaise-Fantaisie

This is the second part of a live recital from Paris recorded in January last year. In the first half, von Eckardstein played Maison dans les dunes by Gabriel Dupont, a cycle he has been promoting very successfully. A selection is included here, but there is also a complete studio recording from 2018.

Isata Kanneh-Mason:

Kanneh-Mason's second solo album is centred around Barber's Piano Sonata, and features a rich array of pieces from many of her favourite American classical composers. "I wanted this album to illustrate the diversity of music in America [in Barber's time] and so it was important to me to include the more familiar Gershwin songs, as well as the Samuel Coleridge-Taylor spirituals to which I feel a personal connection.”

Marcos Madrigal:
Prokofiev - Sonatas 5 & 7, Visions fugitives

This is the start of a huge project by Marco Madrigal and the Artalinna label. The aim is to record all Prokofiev's piano music, which is why the album is released as Prokofiev, Vol. 1. Marcos Madrigal thinks it may take something 10 or 15 years: "It's like a dream that one of the top European companies believes in you and trusts you for a project like this… Prokofiev is one of our gods in classical music. I always dreamed of doing this."

Alain Planès:
Chopin - Complete Nocturnes

Chopin's appreciation for the Pleyel sonority is well documented. For this recording of the complete Chopin Nocturnes, Alain Planès has chosen the period instrument he thinks best suited for the repertoire - a Pleyel built in the 1840s, when many of these masterpieces were composed.
