Notes and Editorial Reviews

A small sensation awaits us in the GENUIN debut release of Estonian pianist Kärt Rubel: the works of the great Baroque composers Johann Jakob Froberger and Johann Joseph Fux performed on a modern piano. And when we hear the limpid and spirited playing of the young artist, at the start of a burgeoning international career, we wonder how the “hidden treasure” of Froberger’s music could have escaped us until now, and how Fux could have been given so little attention! Rubel places the two composers alongside Johann Sebastian Bach, opening a fascinating window onto a previous era, when both were at least as famous as the Cantor of St. Thomas.
