is a musical journey through time featuring songs and chansons from Debussy to The Doors. Arrangements for piano from Williams through Godowski to Volodos and Winkler.
The sung song as the foundation and cradle of music has always attracted and fascinated me. I have put together my favourite and most poignant works to create a journey through time and moods. Many wonderful arrangements were already available. Godowski arranged Strauss songs for piano in his unique style. Arcadi Volodos composed a fantasy on Mompou’s most beautiful song from “Combat del Somni”. Andreas Winkler, a composer from Cologne and lecturer at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, who is my “partner in crime” for this piano recital, has written congenial song arrangements for me – from Maria Tanase to Debussy.
