Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Joachim Raff was regarded by his contemporaries as one of the foremost symphonists of his age, but in his extensive oeuvre of 329 compositions over half of them are for the piano. This selection of 21 works offers a cross section of the best of this large catalogue for the instrument, chosen by acclaimed Raf interpreter Tra Nguyen to showcase the varied aspects of his art. Tra Nguyen's imaginative programming balances core repertoire and lesser-known music, winning critical praise. Her discography introduces many world permiere recordings of neglected music.
