Volume 3 of our releases in collaboration with the Swiss composer René Wohlhauser – this time piano solo with the German pianist Moritz Ernst.

Ernst’s unusually broad repertoire extends from Baroque virginal pieces to modern works, and he often switches between harpsichord and piano in the same concert. In the field of contemporary music he works with leading composers (including Klaus Huber, Sandeep Bhagwati, Wolfgang Rihm, René Wohlhauser, Michael Pelzel, Jimmie LeBlanc, Miklós Maros, Kent Olofsson, Michael Edgerton), who often dedicate pieces to him.

As well as focusing on Rameau, Handel, Beethoven, Haydn, Brahms, Busoni and Debussy, Moritz Ernst also champions unknown or forgotten composers. He demonstrated this with his recording of Malcom Arnold’s piano works (Gramophone: “a sparkling and stimulating interpretation”) and in the complete edition of the surviving sonatas by Viktor Ullmann and Norbert von Hannenheim on EDA, which has been termed a reference recording.
