Schulz: 6 Diverses Pièces, Op. 1 - Keyboard Sonat
Format: COMPACT DISC
Christine Schornsheim has enthralled an enthusiastic audience for many years with an almost inexhaustible variety of sounds by different period keyboard instruments with which she feels at ease and with sheer unending musical imagination. Her passion and her intuition for rare repertoire presents us also on this album two composers who mostly worked and lived in Denmark: The German composer Johann Abraham Peter Schulz, who worked for many years in Copenhagen and became almost famous with his Folk Songs, and his Danish born pupil Christoph Ernst Friedrich Weyse. These are virtuosic piano compositions in the style, tradition and continuation of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. Since 1985 Christine Schornsheim has been active as a freelance harpsichordist. She has appeared under world-renowned conductors and has increasingly performed as a guest soloist at festivals all over the globe.
