Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

For this CD Herbert Schuch has not only selected two composers but also two different instruments. He plays the A-major Sonata on a Fazioli grand piano that provides him with a somewhat more slender sound. The Schubert program is divided by Leos Janacek's 1905 Sonata; this is almost like an 'Unfinished,' for the composer burned the third movement shortly prior to the premiere. OehmsClassics is proud to continue accompanying the intelligently thought out career of Herbert Schuch with this CD.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
The Wanderer Fantasy is Schubert at his most intense and virtuosic. Schuch has obviously put a great deal of thought into how best to project this most often performed of the composer's piano works. Most listeners will immediately recognize the Janacek sound world. The music is powerfully expressive and aching with meaningful thoughts and pauses to which Schuch responds magnificently. Sound engineering is terrific, and the notes are brief and informative. Get your wallets open for this one.
