Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

To commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Paul Hindemith, Hyperion presents two discs featuring some of the composer's finest works played by two of the label's finest soloists. Pianist Markus Becker has been acclaimed for his persuasive and authoritative recordings of German repertoire of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It was in the second half of Hindemith's career that Hindemith produced his major works for solo piano.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Becker's playing is strong, forceful but not overpowering, appropriate for this repertoire; his sound is healthy, his rhythmic sense particularly solid, and his dynamic range tastefully confined without limiting his musical expression. Here is a pianist playing the music, interpreting. In his hands this music gets more than just a fair hearing. Becker's approach is calm, steady, clear, sympathetic, and controlled - refreshing. The unusually well-written notes by Malcolm MacDonald are also very much appreciated.
