Notes and Editorial Reviews

Hermann Keller (born 1945 in Zeitz, Germany) is a pianist and composer as well as a teacher and author of books on German jazz. Keller’s composition titled "Schumann Metamorphoses" for piano is a restless and tightly organized piece. Through modern music the work explores Schumann’s modes of articulation and melodic subtleties. The "Metamorphoses for violin and piano" is a carefully calibrated nine part duet and demonstrates other ways of dealing with thematic material from the romantic period. Also included are two Piano Sonatas by Keller. World premiere recordings.
