Album Summary

>Schubert, Franz : Sonata for Piano in G major, D 894/Op. 78
>Schumann, Robert : Kreisleriana
Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Crossing boundaries Pianist Natalia Ehwald has chosen two ostensibly contrasting works for her debut CD with GENUIN - Schubert's introspective sonata in G major, D. 894 and Schumann's extroverted Kreisleriana. And yet the young musician, winner of the 2000 Robert Schumann Competition in Zwickau, offers us a highly unified and coherent recording. It's no wonder critics and competition jurors are praising her tone and musical energy. She not only brings out the expressiveness in both pieces, but also their quiet moments of deep introspection. Like the pieces themselves, her playing crosses boundaries!

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Mendelssohn-Saal, Gewandhaus Leipzig, Germany (03/02/2015-03/04/2015).
