about this recording:
In remembrance to the tradition, writing a cycle of piano pieces for experiences on different dispositions, I started to plan three sonatinas. These sonatinas should be a more important tribute to a light and undervalued musical genre. Sonatina in this context does not mean the little silly sister of the greater Sonata, easily find in Clementi's type of sonatina. In its variety of freely organized movements it represents a concentrate form of the grande sonate pour le pianoforte. (Fredrik Schwenk) Being equally well acquainted with the piano, the harpsichord and the fortepiano Andreas Skouras' repertoire is huge. He works intensively with composers like Kagel, Schwenk, Kiesewetter, Acker, Stadlmair, Schtschedrin, Borboudakis a. m. o., many of which wrote pieces especially for him.
