Notes & Reviews:

German pianist Georg Friedrich Schenck, a pianist of colossal power and scope, gained an international reputation as teacher of an unorthodox ''Creative Interpretation Technique,'' which resulted in stunning results (international prize winner Evgeny Bozhanov is a student of Schenck). Schenck (born in 1953) studied with Claudio Arrau and Andre Watts. He recorded the complete Beethoven piano sonatas and complete piano works of Brahms. His interpretation of Beethoven's notoriously difficult Hammerklavier sonata adheres to the original metronome marks of Beethoven, and is a revelation of Beethoven's ideas and spirit.
