Lyrical Pieces (selection)
Format: COMPACT DISC
With his "Lyric Pieces", Edvard Grieg kept a kind of poetic piano diary: between 1867 and 1901 he wrote 66 short character pieces, which were published in ten booklets. Pieces such as "Wedding Day at Troldhaugen", "Train of Dwarfs" or "To Spring" are among Grieg's most famous works ever. In addition to these quite virtuoso pieces, however, there are also numerous simpler dances and melodies that can be mastered and successfully performed by piano students at a fairly early age. The Israeli-American pianist Daniel Gortler has selected his personal 21 favourites of the "Lyrical Pieces" for his debut album on Prospero Classical. Pianist Daniel Gortler delights audiences and critics worldwide with memorable performances and his technical mastery as well as his musical ingenuity. He has performed worldwide as a soloist with orchestras such as the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin, the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, the NDR Sinfonieorchester, the Nord West German Philharmonic Orchestra and other orchestras. Career highlights have included a debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, a recital at Wigmore Hall in London and tours of South Africa, Brazil, South Korea and Turkey.
