  • LANNER

    VIENNESE DANCES

    $11.69 ($12.99)
    Joseph Lanner was the inventor of the formal Viennese waltz, elevating it from a peasant dance to a refined art form enjoyed by high society. While renowned in his day, Lanner seldom left Vienna and failed to acquire the same European fame as his more widely-travelled colleague and rival Johann Strauss I, but his music endures for its rich generic variety and lyrical, poetic style. These dances range from boisterous and ‘immoral’ gallopades to the spooky Geistermusik of the Hexentanz, and a late masterpiece Die Schonbrunner, given 21 encores at Lanner’s final concert and including melodies quoted by Stravinsky in his ballet Petrushka.
  • HARSÁNYI

    A HUNGARIAN IN PARIS

    $11.69 ($12.99)
    A student of Kodaly in Budapest, the pianist, composer and conductor Tibor Harsanyi travelled to France in 1923 where he joined an elite group of expatriate composers, including Martinu, Tansman, and Tcherepnin, known as ‘l’ecole de Paris’. This recording presents a survey of Harsanyi’s stylistic development, from one of his earliest works, the Sonatina, with its essentially Romantic roots, to his final work, the Viola Sonata, notable for its mixture of sensuousness and earthiness that connects it to the earlier compositions.
  • CZERNY

    PIANO CONCERTO NO. 1 IN A MINOR, OP. 214

    $11.69 ($12.99)
    Carl Czerny, one of Vienna’s most illustrious musicians, was Beethoven’s student and devoted friend. Renowned today for his piano treatises, he was also a prolific composer in almost every genre, but it is the music for his own instrument that has aroused the most curiosity. The Grand Concerto in A minor, a work both serene and spirited, is historically important as one of the first romantic concertos ever written. The lyricism and playful bravura of the Grand Nocturne Brillant is balanced by the delicious Rossini Variations de Concert.
