Notes & Reviews:

Wigmore Hall Live releases a new CD by pianist Jonathan Biss of works by Franz Schubert and Gyorgy Kurtag. Recorded before a live audience at Wigmore Hall this past May, the album is Biss' first for the Wigmore Hall Live label. "It's very interesting how these kinds of pairings across the centuries work," said Biss. "It's not only that Kurtag responds to Schubert but also that the reverse is true. Somehow Schubert's music is changed and affected, and its chemistry is altered by sharing a platform with Kurtag."
