2007

Ignaz Moscheles

Grande Sonate E flat major op. 47

Carl Maria von Weber

Huit pièces op. 60

The piano music of both composers of this CD are neglected. Not rightly, as we find. Sonata by Moscheles is a brillant masterly work, which can be absolutely compared to similar works by Beethoven or Schubert. The 8 pieces are of the finest piano cuet works of this period.

Partita for two pianos

Pastorale d'été

Trois contrpoints

Chant de joie

with Erwin Bucher and Michael Erni, percussion Honegger takes a very important place in our repertoire, the Partita is hos only original work for two pianos. We feel also a very strong committment to Raffaele d'Alessandro, a very interesting Swiss composer, who is unfortunately completely forgotten.
