CD information

MUSICAL PORTRAIT OF A VIBRANT CITY

After his acclaimed Mendelssohn album with cellist Johannes Moser, Alasdair Beatson presents his first PENTATONE solo album Aus Wien, on which he brings together piano music from Schubert, Schumann, Schoenberg, Korngold and Ravel. Ranging from treasures of late-Romantic and early atonal music to carnivalesque, grandiose dance pieces, the works on Aus Wien constitute a picture of the vibrant city of Vienna, a hub of musical creativity without parallel, and the capital of the waltz.

Alasdair Beatson works prolifically as a soloist and chamber musician, and is renowned as a sincere musician and intrepid programmer. Aus Wien is his second PENTATONE release.

Released physically as a Standard CD.
