With a large discography under his belt, reflecting a wide diversity of repertoire, pianist Herbert Schuch has now built his debut CD for Naïve on the sound of bells.

"Two things about them stimulate my imagination", says the pianist, "the wonderful richness of the partials in large bells, and the chaotic-seeming rhythmic interference of a confused peal of bells, which generates constantly changing structures and patterns in the listener’s brain."

So it is hardly surprising that Schuch should build a complete programme on the theme of ‘invocation – the call of bells’ and perform works that express in instrumental terms the emotional appeal conveyed by the sound of bells and their sublimated sacral character.

Herbert Schuch was born in Temesvar (Romania) in 1979. After early piano lessons in his home town, he emigrated with his family in 1988 to Germany, where he now lives. Recently Herbert Schuch has been influenced by his encounters and work with Alfred Brendel. He initially attracted international attention when he won three important piano competitions: the Casagrande, the London International Piano Competition and the International Beethoven Piano Competition in Vienna, all within the space of a single year.

The bright young Romanian-German pianist Herbert Schuch is building his career with marvellous consistency. This is demonstrated less by vain, flashy solo appearances than an ever deeper fathoming of individual works. His amazing technique is always in the service of intellectual penetration that is also conveyed on his CD releases.” - Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
