Notes & Reviews:

Guild is proud to present this debut recital, the first album recorded by the very gifted 15-year-old Swiss pianist Martin Werner. He has been playing the piano since the age of three, and received his earliest encouragement from his family, in his home town of Schaffhausen. His piano teachers have included a number of distinguished professors of piano in Switzerland. In 2003 Martin gave a much-admired performance of Haydn's Concerto in D-Major with the Winterthur Youth Orchestra conducted by Christoph Rehli. In this recital, Martin plays a wide variety of Romantic piano music from the 19th to the earliest part of the 20th centuries, amongst which will be found some of the best-loved short pieces in the entire repertoire.
