Arthur Rubinstein had performed Saint-Saens Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor, Op. 22 many times throughout his concert career; in fact, this was one of the pieces on the program of his first public concert given in 1900. The style in which he plays it is simply captivating. It's not a serious concerto in the German-school, but rather a light-hearted and somewhat amusing concerto. This is probably the most famous recording of the composition, and it's no wonder why. The Symphonic Variations of Cesar Franck are fantastic, full of energy, vitality and French-Romantic beauty.

Trumpeter Avishai Cohen follows his impressionistic, critically-lauded ECM debut with Cross My Palm With Silver, five pieces that put the focus on the ensemble, on teamwork, with a quartet of the highest calibre. The adroit, almost telepathic interplay among the musicians allows Cohen to soar; his "dream team" of pianist Yonathan Avishai, double bassist Barak Mori and drummer Nasheet Waits share his sense for daring improvisation and his feeling for structure.

Liszt's Piano Sonata in B minor is one of the seminal works of the Romantic piano repertoire and one of the most technically challenging pieces any pianist can undertake. Continuing this virtuosic theme, and demonstrating his great ambition as a pianist of the highest calibre, Lazaridis also presents Liszt's Grandes études de Paganini. This six-part composition, based on themes originally composed for violin by Niccolò Paganini, again places huge demands on the technical and interpretive abilities of the performer.

“I can hear in the music of both composers a similarity in their processes of giving physical form to their inspirations.
The cruel resistance of the blank page feels, in both cases, inexistent, ignored. And therein lies an important, precious connection between Mozart and Schumann: an unobstructed directness to their music, in which the purity of intention remains intact.” Piotr Anderszewski
