Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pianist and teacher Ulrich Urban has performed with orchestras and chamber ensembles as well as in solo recitals. He has also made recordings of rarely performed piano works, including these concert paraphrases drawn from the operas of Hans Pfitzner. Lovers of romantic keyboard music are well aware of the virtuosic paraphrases by Franz Liszt and others of opera themes and famous works by well-known composers. It is however quite rare and interesting to encounter these keyboard pieces, exploring the melodious qualities of Pfitzner's arias and themes.
