Back in September 2012 the pianist Tobias Koch recorded an album of romantic piano works by composers including Johannes Brahms, Woldemar Bargiel and Theodor Fürchtegott Kirchner. But principally Robert Schumann and his Bunte Blätter op. 99.
A work that will be released on the Leipzig based Genuin label on Monday September 2nd.
The album was recorded in the Leipzig Grassi Museum for Musical Instruments on a 1828 Fortepiano from the Leipzig music instrument maker Johann Nepomuk Tröndlin, and on Saturday September 7th Tobias Koch will present the album in the same location. And on the same Fortepiano.
A wonderful chance to not only experience 19th century music as it was intended to be played, but to, as it were, “hear before you buy”
The Robert Schumann, Bunte Blätter op. 99 CD presentation takes place in the Grassi Museum for Musical Instruments on Saturday September 7th at 5pm.
And as stated the album itself, is available from Monday September 2nd!
