Kurt Leimer plays Rachmaninov’s third piano concerto, of almost legendary fame, and also his own second piano concerto, a light-hearted homage to all the great composers whose works this outstanding pianist used to perform with such verve and brilliance.
Kurt Leimer plays three milestones from the baroque, classical and romantic eras, illustrating the appealingly “different” art of piano playing which his name has exemplified for almost 100 years.

A challenge to prejudice: vividly and passionately, the internationally celebrated Persian conductor Alexander Rahbari shares with us the musical history of his homeland.

Three famous examples from sonata literature in one CD: classical awareness of form intersects with romantic and revolutionary impetuousness, and this is where Elly Ney’s irresistible Beethoven becomes an occasion to celebrate.
“Just as Beethoven’s impact radiated out into the whole world, far beyond his origins in Bonn, so Elly Ney enabled his music to be heard in other parts of the world, opened up the way to him for innumerable listeners, and touched their hearts.” (Wilhelm Daniels, Mayor of the city of Bonn)
“On wings of song”, these three Romantic composers tell us, even without words, of the secret yearnings of an era which never passed away and which is therefore truly timeless.

Working with her husband, the conductor Willem van Hoogstraten, enables Elly Ney to realize her personal ideals of Beethoven to the full.
