Notes and Editorial Reviews

To have the Romanian-German pianist Herbert Schuch’s complete Oehms discography collected into a single box set provides a valuable overview of this brilliantly talented performer who balances superb technique with the ability to find the essence of the composition. With a primary emphasis on the Romantic era, Schuch never falls into sentimental tropes in his interpretations. As noted in the Frankfurter Allegmeine Zeitung ,“The bright young Romanian-German pianist Herbert Schuch is building his career with marvellous consistency. This is demonstrated less by vain, flashy solo appearances than an ever deeper fathoming of individual works.” To have the Romanian-German pianist Herbert Schuch’s complete Oehms discography collected into a single box set provides a valuable overview of this brilliantly talented performer who balances superb technique with the ability to find the essence of the composition.
