Notes and Editorial Reviews

In 1835, Johann Wilhelm Braschoss added a music room and workshop to the Gruyère castle, equipped with a fine concert piano, possibly via suggestions from Franz Liszt, who was performing in Geneva from 1835 through 1839. On this wonderful instrument, with its softly singing, but quite powerful tone, pianist Adalberto Maria Riva plays rarely heard Romantic era music by Swiss composers. All these musical gems reflect the romantic ideal of "Music and Nature". Therefore, the aim of this recording is to offer an overview of mid-19th Century Swiss musical life with commissioned works composed for the special qualities of this historic piano owned by Johann Wilhelm Braschoss. - Gallo [translated from German text.] In 1835, Johann Wilhelm Braschoss added a music room and workshop to the Gruyère castle, equipped with a fine concert piano, possibly via suggestions from Franz Liszt, who was performing in Geneva from 1835 through 1839.
