Informationen

​1810 saw the births not only of Frédéric Chopin and Robert Schumann, but also of Norbert Burgmüller and Ludwig Schuncke. All four composers knew and valued each other as artists and as friends. While in later life Schumann and Chopin would go on to achieve world fame with their works, Norbert Burgmüller and Ludwig Schuncke died young, leaving behind only a small body of works hardly known today.
This recording brings together early works by Chopin and Schumann with selected virtuosic pieces by Burgmüller and Schuncke. All the works represent an energetic expression of these four geniuses, still youthful and seeking orientation, yet already manifestly inspired due to their precociousness.

Ein klarer, schlanker und reiner Klaviersound, eine gute innere Beweglichkeit und eine angenehme Kantabilität erfüllen die Werke, die auf dieser CD zu hören sind. Der Pianist Ulrich Roman Murtfeld lässt keinen Zweifel daran, dass die Frühwerke schon ihre Meister zeigen.

Nach den angeregt und voller Charme gespielten Chopin-Variationen über ‘La ci darem la mano’ beweisen die Stücke von Norbert Burgmüller welch großartiger Komponist gestorben war, als er 1836 im Alter von nur 26 Jahren im Thermalbad in Aachen ertrank. Noch jünger war Ludwig Schuncke, der nur 24 war, als er in Leipzig verstarb, wo er mit seinem Freund Schumann die Neue Zeitschrift für Musik gegründet hatte. Von ihm spielt Murtfeld drei besonders ausdrucksstarke Werke. Nicht weniger spannend und kommunikativ gestaltet der Pianist die beiden Schumann-Stücke, das Opus 1, Abegg Variationen, und die drängend dargebotene Toccata.


ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

A clear, lean and pure piano sound, a good inner agility and a pleasant cantabile fill the works that can be heard on this CD. Pianist Ulrich Roman Murtfeld leaves no doubt that the early works already show their masters.

After the animated and charmingly played Chopin Variations on ‘La ci darem la mano’, the pieces by Norbert Burgmüller prove what a great composer had died when he drowned in a thermal bath in Aachen in 1836 at the age of only 26. Even younger was Ludwig Schuncke, who was only 24 when he died in Leipzig, where he had founded the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik with his friend Schumann. Murtfeld plays three particularly expressive works by him. No less exciting and communicative, the pianist shapes the two Schumann pieces, the Opus 1, Abegg Variations, and the urgently performed Toccata.
