Notes & Reviews:

After her critically acclaimed recordings of Mozart (complete sonatas), Schumann and Schubert, Hungarian-born Klára Würtz turns to her compatriot Béla Bartók, presenting a representative selection of his piano works. She plays a powerful, rhythmically vital yet never 'pounding' Sonata, a colourful and vibrant Suite Op. 14, an uncompromising 'Allegro Barbaro' and a selection of pieces from 'Mikrokosmos' and 'Gyermekeknek' (For Children). In these latter pieces one feels her innate feeling for the (musical) language of the Hungarian children's songs and nursery rhymes.

Klára Würtz studied at the Liszt Ferenc Academy in Budapest, imbibing the rich musical culture and knowledge of such teachers as György Kurtág, Ferenc Rados and Zoltán Kocsis.
