Notes & Reviews:

In this new recording, pianist Iskander Zakirov juxtaposes Beethoven's late Sonata No. 32 in C Minor, Op. 111 with works by composers of the Second Viennese School - Schoenberg, Berg, and Webern, tracing the natural continuation of music's development, from classical roots to advanced chromaticism and twelve-tone technique (dodecaphony).

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Our editor must have known I'd be happy to get this release. I'm a big fan of the Second Viennese School, and this program includes works by all three of that crowd's principals - Schoenberg, Webern, and Berg. The brief notes contain one curious inaccuracy: They claim that the Schoenberg pieces as well as all three Webern pieces are written using the 12-tone technique. In fact, only the Variations and Kinderstucke are 12-tone.
