Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pianist Patricia Hase, although young, has been educated alongside the international piano elite at the Hanover University for Music, Drama and Media under Matti Raekallio. Her aim is to establish connections between the intellectual works of Western culture and the listener’s everyday life. Founded in 2014, the Ensemble Galina was born from the desire to make music at the level where quality performance and friendship mesh. Eighteen musicians make up the ensemble, and consist of music students and emerging professionals from across Germany. This release includes the world premiere recording of Vinzenz Lachner’s version of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2, transcribed for piano and string orchestra.
