Andras Schiff, Brahms and the Question of Tradition
Much attention and mention is given Sir Andras Schiff's latest remarkable recording of both Brahms’ piano concertos with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.

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
Pierre-Laurent Aimard:
Beethoven - Hammerklavier Sonata, Eroica Variations

Perhaps most widely known for his interpretations of 20th century music - his most recent recording was of Messiaen’s complete Catalogue d’Oiseaux - Pierre-Laurent Aimard's repertoire actually includes music from every age. Of the Hammerklavier Sonata, he says that it "surpasses all understanding. Facing it is one of the most frightening tests of a performer’s life. But it is as irresistible as it is insurmountable."

Antony Gray:
Il Maestro e lo Scolare

This is a double album of piano duets written expressly for teacher and student, written by a range of composers of the 19th and 20th centuries up to the current decade. Antony Gray is a London-based pianist and teacher who has found great use for this relatively unknown repertoire, in both teaching and performance. The CD features over 50 of his students.

Joonas Ahonen:
Ives - Sonatas 1 & 3, Gander - Peter Parker

Joonas Ahonen released Charles Ives' Concord Sonata in 2017. On this album he offers the composers' two lesser-known Sonatas. The first is just as monumental and ambitious, but arrived on the scene considerably later and with far less fanfare. The third on the other hand is very brief and concentrated, and has become known as the "Three-Page Sonata".

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.
