ArtistsSten Lassmann (piano)
Heino Eller (1887–1970) was one of the founders of the classical tradition in his native Estonia. Yet his copious output for piano – some 200 works – is largely unknown, an omission this series of eight CDs seeks to redress.
This fifth volume contains two works of central importance: the Preludes, Book II (1920) are Eller’s highest achievement in a modernist-expressionist style, and the Bartókian 13 Pieces on Estonian Motifs (1940–41) mark his turn to the folk-like style favoured in the Soviet period.
They are joined by a group of attractive, mostly early, miniatures and a prentice set of variations in the Romantic, virtuoso tradition.
Press comment on Vol.2: ‘I was drawn to Eller’s music from the opening tracks, and only became more enamored as the music played on. The deal that this would be an Uncommonly Classical recommendation was sealed about 25 minutes in as I listened to the potent and darkly beautiful Episode from Revolutionary Times (1917). This alone is worth the price of the CD. […] Performances by pianist Sten Lassmann […] are excellent’ - Recommendation, Expedition Audio
