    Series: BH Piano
    Composer: Leonard Bernstein
    Editor: Michael Mizrahi

    Closer Look Add to Wish List Add to Cart Most of Bernstein's compositions for solo piano took the form of the Anniversary. Bernstein is not the first composer to have written a short homage to commemorate a special date; he perhaps took his inspiration from Virgil Thompson (1896-1989) and that composer's Portraits. Bernstein wrote a total of 29 Anniversaries spanning virtually the entirety of his creative life, from the early 1940s until the late 1980s. Each of the Anniversaries were written in honor of someone in Bernstein's life: mentors, friends, students, teachers. Except for those cited as “In Memoriam,” the...(more)

    Composer: Sebastian Currier

    Add to Wish List Add to Cart From the composer: When pianist Inon Barnatan asked me to write him a new work, he had a particular stipulation: that I somehow connect my piece with Ravel's Gaspard de la Nuit, which he would program alongside my new work. This seemed an intriguing proposition. I decided not to refer to any musical material in Gaspard, but took my cue from the textual elements that accompany the score. The title of the work comes from a collection of poems by Aloysius Bertrand. It is is generally translated as “The Treasurer (or Jewel Keeper) of the Night.”

    Series: BH Piano
    Composer: Kurt Schwertsik

    Add to Wish List Add to Cart Compiled in one album for the first time: Kurt Schwertsik’s Piano Works.

    Albumblätter - 14 short works for friends, plus Cinque Nocturnes (Op 10b), Fantasia & Fuga (Op 105), Am Morgen vor der Reise (Op 119) and Eden-Bar Seefeld (Op 6). Includes contextual notes by the composer.

    Kurt Schwertsik's music is charactirised by ever-changing moods and is idiosyncratic with a refreshing lightness of touch. Though a pupil of Stockhausen, the composer rejected serialism in favour of new forms of tonality. His search for an 'alternative' modern culture draws inspiration from Satie and...(more)

    Composer: Sergei Bortkiewicz

    Add to Wish List Add to Cart Sergei Bortkiewicz (1877-1952) continued the late-Romantic piano tradition with great melodic talent. After studying in St. Petersburg with Anatoly Lyadov and in Leipzig with the Liszt pupil Alfred Reisenauer, the native Ukrainian settled in Berlin. Political times blocked his career several times. Only in 1945 he was able to regain his footing in Vienna. The Fantasy Pieces for Piano op. 61 were to be printed in 1949 by the music publishers Benjamin, but again the political circumstances were not favorable for Bortkiewicz. In 2013, the manuscript was discovered in the Saxon State Archive...(more)

    Series: BH Piano
    Composer: Johannes Boris Borowski

    Add to Wish List Add to Cart Miniatures for Piano is a collection of small piano pieces, each one to three minutes long and of varying difficulty. They can be played as a complete cycle, as individual pieces or as a selection in any combination.

    The titles of the pieces indicate content and techniques used, in part based on structural principles of the film. But the music is not reducible to it - far too often a wrong track is missing.

    Johannes Boris Borowski (* 1979) is an outstanding voice of New Music. His interpreters include the Ensemble intercontemporain, the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, the...(more)
