Notes & Reviews:

This unique collection of solo piano music by three Swiss composers, all roughly contemporaries of one another, opens a window on what is today a little-known and unjustly neglected area of the repertoire which may come as a revelation to many music-lovers. Walter Schulthess, the most recent, is perhaps the least-known internationally. Born in Zurich, he studied initially with Andreas Volkmann. Until his death, Schulthess was active as a pianist, teacher and administrator. Emil Frey's compositions are extensive and range from symphonies and concertos to chamber music and solo piano works. He studied at the Geneva Conservatory and then at the Paris Conservatoire, where his teachers included Faure and Widor. Robert Freund was probably the best-known of the three. He was a pupil of Moscheles and Tausig, and became a close friend of Franz Liszt and Brahms. All three of these men developed fine reputations as pianists, and each of these fascinating works prove to be extremely well-written for the instrument, and rewarding for the pianist to play and for the piano enthusiast to discover.
