About

This second release by ICSM Records features solo piano compositions by Schubert (Moments musicaux), Schumann (Phantasiestücke) and Schoenberg (Sechs kleine Klavierstücke).

The recording's title, 'Freedom', wants to be an exploration of what composers produced when they did not start with a codified musical form but rather with a poetic idea.

In this thought-provoking programme, both Schubert and Schumann's cycles show powers of evocation and characterisation at their height, whilst in Schoenberg's music, pared back beyond its essentials, we glimpse a snapshot into the elements of a psychological crisis. The last piece of Tarli's recording is Schoenberg's haunting reminiscence of Gustav Mahler's funeral bells.
