Notes & Reviews:

Michael Gees is an acclaimed pianist and composer/improviser, best known for his collaborations with Christoph Prégardien. The duo was awarded the 2009 MIDEM Vocal Award and MIDEM Record of the Year Award for Schubert's Die Schöne Müllerin, also available on Challenge Classics. ImproviSatie is Gees' statement of music as an 'ex tempore' - art that always changes, never staying the same. In Gees' view, improvisation should not only be used with new pieces but also with existing masterpieces!
