Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

With Vol. 2 of Schönberg & Schüler Steffen Schleiermacher, the leading interpreter of piano music of the twentieth century, rounds off the MDG series featuring the Viennese School and works by Alban Berg, Arnold Schönberg, Anton Webern, and their pupils. The result: an always suspenseful, often contrastive, always fascinating and eminently significant compositional panorama – and an absolute success!

International Record Review
This is a fascinating disc and it opens with two brilliantly succinct works by Schoenberg himself: the Klavierstncke, Op.33a and 33b. Performances are consistently authoritative and Schleiermacher's own booklet notes make for equally fascinating reading.

Gramophone Magazine
The two short Schoenberg pieces placed first on this disc provide masterclasses in the presentation of purposeful yet poetically imaginative substance.
