Notes and Editorial Reviews

Through her many recordings for Brilliant Classics Hungarian/Dutch pianist Klára Würtz established herself firmly as one of the more exciting pianists of the younger generation. Her playing radiates with energy, brilliance and warmth, not only laying bare the musical structures, but even more importantly, opening the soul of the composer to the listener. In this set she plays her favourite works, for which she has a specific affection, in which she has something special to say, a personal response to the music.
