Ludwig Schuncke (1810‐1834) died of tuberculosis tragically young, at the age of only 24. He was hailed in the Leipzig musical circles as a young genius, and Robert Schumann (who became a close friend) exclaimed: “this is the one we were waiting for!”

Schuncke wrote for the newly founded 'Neue Zeitschrift für Musik', was a member of Schumann’s Davidsbund, and quickly established himself as a composer. His style, firmly rooted in the classical Viennese tradition, is infused with Romantic gestures, and emotional outpourings, his pianistic style strongly influenced by his comrade Schumann: flourishing and virtuoso.

This new recording contains the complete piano music of Schuncke - a Grand Sonata and several salon pieces of brilliant and diverting character: a real discovery!

They are played with brilliance and gusto by the young Russian pianist Tatiana Larionova.
