  • Description

    What do the three composers on this album, who come from such different eras, have in common? They all broke new ground, both in terms of piano-playing technique and musically. All three developed their works directly, almost improvisationally, on the instrument. And for all three of them, light-heartedness and the joy of playing the instrument are at the forefront of their works. And it is this joy of playing and light-heartedness that also characterise the essence of this recording, whose basic idea was to “capture� the “intuitively musical“ in a recording, i.e. to bring the improvisational spirit of these pieces to life. Thus, this album is a snapshot, as it were, that captures something that is alive like a picture captures movement. The selection of the pieces is based on a shared inner musical bond and an affinity of the keys that ties the whole CD together. Considered a master of the “Viennese sound�, pianist Bernhard Parz performs as a soloist and chamber musician in many parts of the world – in halls such as the Tonhalle Zurich or the JT-Arts Hall Tokyo, and at festivals such as the Shanghai International Arts Festival, the “Pera Piano Festival� Istanbul, and the “Festival Internacional de Piano� of the University of Santander in Colombia. He is bearer of the title “Bosendorfer Artist�, and is thus an ambassador of Viennese musical culture, with a corresponding program focus. He delights and inspires his concert audiences with his personal, lively and direct playing. He is not only internationally in demand as a teacher, but is also committed to spreading his enthusiasm for music to a broad audience by means of alternative concert formats and music education projects.
