Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This 10 CD box set contains the complete piano works of the Liechtenstein composer, Josef Gabriel Rheinberger, for the first time ever. Recorded between 1990 and 2004 in Vaduz, Chur, Eschen and Sargans, this project is both a labor of love and a long awaited release.



Reviews

unknown treasures
This is an absolutely essential box of pianistic treasure which SHOULD be known by anyone who thinks they know the piano literature. I count myself as one of the ignorant, because I know all the GREAT masterpieces by the acknowledged masters, Rheinberger is one master that virtually NO ONE knows or plays. If history had been fairer, this never would have happened. There are so many treasures, that to single out one or two would be much too narrow a focus. The performances are fabulous as well. Where Mr. Hanselmann (and his wife on the two piano and piano duet works) have been hiding I do not know. Virtuosity of the highest caliber is displayed from start to finish. The box should be required listening by piano teachers, students and performers, and bring this music into the mainstream where it deserves to stay. Five stars seems stingy : it deserves many more than that!
