Classical music

Martin Helmchen, piano

Part of International Piano Series

The paper writes, `The world isn’t short of brilliant concert pianists, but [he] stands out even in that remarkable crowd.’ The young German artist has built an enviable reputation with emphasis on the Austro-German Classical and Romantic repertoire and a lively concern with contemporary music.

Helmchen has built an enviable reputation particularly in the classical and romantic repertoire. Schumann’s Novelletten form the largest and the least known among Schumann’s major piano cycles with the music clearly written in an exultant mood. In the second half we hear Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations, a startlingly original masterpiece filled with power, wit and virtuosity.
