Notes & Reviews:

Born in Munich, Margarita Hohenrieder is without doubt one of the most brilliant pianists of our time. A highly esteemed soloist and chamber musician, she has performed with many celebrated orchestras including the Symphony Orchestra of Bavarian Radio, the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, the Staatskapelle of Dresden, the Gewandhaus Orchestra of Leipzig, the Mozarteum Orchestra of Salzburg, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, and the New York Philharmonic, under conductors like Claudio Abbado, Riccardo Chailly, James Levine, Fabio Luisi, and Lorin Maazel, to name only a few. For this new album, she worked with the renowned Gewandhaus Quartet, the oldest continuously existing quartet formation. In its 200 years of history the quartet has performed many world premieres, including works by Robert Schumann and Felix Mendelssohn, who was also a Gewandhaus conductor.
