Notes & Reviews:

This recording features pianist Urs Liska and follows the great success of Liska's previous complete recordings of the songs by Arnold Schoenberg. The majority of these works, which are piano arrangements with up to four players, are world premiere recordings. These arrangements effectively show Schoenberg's orchestral works, like Orchestral Pieces op. 16 or Gurre-Lieder in a new and fascinating light. German pianist Urs Liska focuses on the performance of contemporary music alongside ensembles and orchestras. He also composes and improvises electronic music.
