Notes & Reviews:

Steffen Schleiermacher’s recording of the complete piano works of John Cage has brought him his international breakthrough. These recordings earned the pianist numerous prizes, including three ECHO Klassik awards. Schleiermacher, teaming up with Andreas Seidel, returns to Cage’s music, in a recording of the composer’s complete oeuvre for piano and violin. These four pieces spanning five decades in Cage’s life are also a perfect fit for the CD format. Seidel, the former first violinist of the Leipzig String Quartet and a member of Schleiermacher’s Ensemble Avantgarde, is a musician who with his joy of performance and technical brilliance today enriches the Gewandhaus Orchestra in Leipzig.

Gramophone Magazine
Any recording of Cage involving Steffen Schleiermacher is guaranteed to be utterly fastidious and dedicated... This CD is predictably impressive.
