Notes & Reviews:

Alexandra Sostmann traces the delicate ramifications in the history of piano music. Despite the historical distances, the choices makes clear that music and interpretation are dependent upon one another and that, together, they can reveal similarities between baroque and contemporary music. Magnificent Baroque as well as 'new' Piano Music by Bach, Gubaidulina, Part, Xiaoyong Chen (Premiere Recording), Terry Riley (Transcription for Piano - Premiere Recording), Dutilleux and Shostakovich.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Friedrich-Ebert-Halle, Hamburg (09/2013).
