This acclaimed edition covering the early 20th century’s fashionable wave of hot dance music from America into Europe now takes us to Switzerland. One luxury hotel owner was able to boast that ‘only here, and at the Savoy Hotel in London, can you hear real jazz’. The trend for hotel bands spread its influence to all corners of ‘light’ and ‘classical’ musical culture, and Switzerland, as a popular destination for international travel, became an epicentre for this worldwide dance fever. 20th-Century Foxtrots Vol.5 presents more evocative piano rarities from this Golden Age, performed with panache and grace by Gottlieb Wallisch.

Gottlieb Wallisch has performed on stage at the world’s most prestigious concert halls and festivals: Carnegie Hall New York, Wigmore Hall in London, the Cologne Philharmonie, the Tonhalle Zurich, and the NCPA in Beijing, also the Ruhr Piano Festival, the Beethovenfest in Bonn, and the Festivals of Lucerne and Salzburg. Conductors with whom he has performed as a soloist include Sir Neville Marriner, Dennis Russell Davies, Kirill Petrenko, Martin Haselböck and Bruno Weil. Orchestras he has performed with include the Vienna Philharmonic, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Frankfurt Radio Symphony, Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra Budapest and the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra. He has made numerous recordings for record labels, including Naxos. Gottlieb Wallisch is a Steinway Artist.
