Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This first recording for Piano Classics by Lukas Geniusas presents two 19th century masterworks, both Sonatas of extraordinary length, scope and content. Brahms' First Piano Sonata op. 1 ("a veiled symphony" according to his admirer Robert Schumann) is a young man's answer to Beethoven's magnificent Hammerklavier Sonata, a work of unprecedented impact, which radically changed the concept of the Sonata in the 19th century. Lukas Geniuas is one of the most exciting young pianists of his generation. At only 24 he has won the Silver Medal of the Chopin Competition 2010, the first Prize of the Bachauer Competition and the German Pianist Award. He concertizes all around the world, playing his extraordinary programmes, sometimes consisting of performances of the complete Chopin Etudes and the Rachmaninoff preludes.
