Two greater contrasts: Liszt’s inscrutable Sonata in B minor and Schumann’s enchanting Kinderszenen in performances by the young Swiss pianist Joseph-Maurice Weder. A bold programme - since recordings of these two works are not in short supply. Weder nonetheless repeatedly discovers new things in these frequently performed works.

With important support from the legendary “Manfred Bürki” Steinway concert grand piano of 1901, an instrument with a brilliant treble shining its supernatural light over the profound bass, this CD is well worth a listen.

Even though Joseph-Maurice Weder is not yet thirty years old, he can already look back on a distinguished career. The winner of many prizes, he represented his native Switzerland as the “Swiss Ambassador” in Great Britain in 2013 with concerts at London’s prestigious Wigmore Hall and in Edinburgh, Belfast, and Cardiff. He has also appeared as a guest at Berlin’s Philharmonic Hall and at Vienna’s Musikverein.
