Hungarian-born pianist Klára Würtz was a child prodigy. Now at a more mature age her playing still has a disarming freshness leaving room for composers to speak for themselves. This pianist possesses exquisite musicality and impressive technique.
We now present a 5 SACD set showing Würtz’s talent in all its variety and aspects. In the Mozart Sonatas there is clarity, in the Schubert Sonatas also a poetic vein. Schumann offers ample room for the pianist’s warm and romantic side in the well-known and –loved Kreisleriana and others works.
Real virtuosity can be enjoyed when listening to the 4th and 5th discs. The piano concertos by Rachmaninoff (No. 2) and Schumann together with the National Symphony Orchestra of the Ukraine also involve real passion. Some shorter works by Liszt, Schubert, Schumann, Chopin and Debussy complete this set in a more intimate way. In short, a wide selection from the piano literature, attractively performed by a versatile pianist.
New recordings on 5-channel SACD’s. These are the usual hybrid SACD’s, playable on both ordinary CD and SACD players.
