about this recording:
E.T.A. Hoffmann’s impressive Piano Sonata in C-sharp Minor – played on fortepiano by Egino Klepper – stands at the center of this unusual CD program, framed and mirrored by piano and ensemble works by the contemporary Bamberg composer Horst Lohse. Thus, spooky night pieces in the spirit of the arch-Romanticist are to be found in addition to twelve piano pieces and the Valses tristes, Hommage à E.T.A. Hoffmann for fortepiano – truly an irritating and exciting program after the manner of Callot.
E.T.A. Hoffmann: sonata for fortepiano, cis minor
Horst Lohse: Nachtstücke I, III und IV for Ensemble/string quartet, Zwölf Klavierstücke, „Valses tristes“ for fortepiano
