Walter Niemann (1876-1953): Piano Music / Bing Bing Li, piano

Notes & Reviews:

Highly respected in his day as a composer and pianist, but neglected after the Second World War, Walter Niemann (1876-1953), pupil of Humperdinck and Reinecke, amongst others, wrote prolifically for the piano in a romantic style with an underlying sense of passion and impressionist exoticism. Now resident in the UK, Ms. BingBing Li (b. 1987) has given solo recitals and with orchestra at leading concert venues and festivals throughout Europe and North America. 'BingBing Li performed with vigor and authority; it was a refreshing contrast and a torrent of inventiveness... ' (London Times)

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
Concluding the program is a four-minute Fantasy-Mazurka from 1918 that would make a fine encore to any program. The notes are very good and the recording of the highest order. Now, can we have the rest of this master's output? It's THAT good.
