About

This CD has been planned as a cross-section through the Romantic age and commences with Robert Schumann's Abegg Variations, a work of his youth filled with youthful freshness and gaiety. Then we have the 'Paganini of the Piano' Franz Liszt, who presents a challenge, since the virtuosity is obvious in his works. The virtuoso loses himself in his instrument and in his own secretive life. Max Reger would and could transgress the limits, according to his mood. Silhouettes is exciting music where each piece is created with a sense of melody and firm with its own special character. The last romantic is the Swiss Othmar Schoeck, who for a time was a pupil of Max Reger and this can be discerned from his tonal language.
