Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

When Schoenberg wrote his Three Piano Pieces in 1894, he was still a self-taught composer. Brahms and Wagner were the twenty-year-old's two models. Fifteen years later the Three Piano Pieces op. 11 are very different. Schoenberg had by then found his way to a new compositional quality: traditional tonality dissolves, dissonance emancipates itself. The Six Little Piano Pieces op. 19 from 1911 are marked by radical brevity. Schoenberg set out in quest of a "new order" and in the Five Piano Pieces op. 23 and the Suite op. 25 seems to have found it in the early twenties. Clear references to Bach - and not only such references - make the Suite a splendid exemplar of the neoclassical fashion of that time. In his mid-fifties he demonstrated with the Piano Pieces op. 33a and 33b that the traditional sonata mode of thought was not foreign even to a fiery innovator like him. The two grand pianos heard on this recording are from the composer's era.
