Notes and Editorial Reviews
Sergio Tiempo, "The most dazzling and spontaneous pianist of his generation" (Gramophone), is back with Legacy, his stunning new solo recital. Featuring major works by Beethoven, Chopin, Prokofiev and Villa-Lobos, this new album draws a moving musical portrait of the Tiempo family members. Sergio Tiempo selected each piece according to the personalities of his family. Beethoven’s Appassionata for his mother, the legendary musical pedagogue Lyl Tiempo, an Intermezzo by Brahms for his sister Karin Lechner, with whom Sergio forms a world-renowned duo, a tango by Piazzolla for his father Martin Tiempo, a longtime friend of Martha Argerich. His niece Natasha Binder, a rising pianist in her own rights, Maud, Sergio's wife and their children are also the inspiration behind this program. All in all, a deeply personal project by "one of the leading pianists of our time" (Musicweb).
