ArtistsMariann Marczi (piano)
With his Moments musicaux, Schubert set the standard for a whole genre: dancing, evocative miniatures, each offering a brief snapshot of some vignette or character, like a succession of colourful pictures in a slide show. Like Schubert, Huttenbrenner studied with Salieri and was influenced by Beethoven; the theme from the slow movement of his String Quartet No.1 is audibly related to the Allegretto from Beethovenís Symphony No.7. Schubert particularly loved that symphony, but chose his friendís theme as the basis for his set of Variations on a theme by Huttenbrenner.
Hungarian pianist Mariann Marczi relishes approaching Schubertís music from different perspectives, ranging from Baroque nuances in some of Schubertís Moments musicaux, to glorious Romanticism which anticipates Schumannís music. Alongside Schubertís captivating Moments musicaux and inventive Variations, we hear the contagious Grazer Walzer. Schumannís Waldszenen or Forest Scenes complete the release, taking the listener on an intriguing journey from idyllic pastoral landscapes to darker, more mysterious terrain.
