Notes and Editorial Reviews

On this album Austrian-born pianist Christiane Karajeva, who besides pursuing an international solo and chamber music career has been teaching at the University of Music and dramatic Arts Vienna for more than thirty years, presents works by Alexander Skrjabin and Franz Schubert. The Preludes Op. 11 by Skrjabin stand in the tradition of the ones by Frederic Chopin. Similarly, Skrjabin drafts his 24 compact piano pieces as a tour through all musical keys. The Sonata G major Op. 78 D 894 by Franz Schubert came to be his last piano sonata which has been published during his lifetime. It captivates the listener with atmospheres which can be accurately described by antonyms and terms like movement and calmness, joy and despair, solitude, Read more aspiration and solace. Read less
