SCHUBERT : 4 IMPROMPTUS – 12 GERMAN DANCES – GRAZER FANTASY – TRUDELIES LEONHARDT, FORTEPIANO
Franz SCHUBERT : 4 Impromptus, Op. 142, D. 935 – 12 German Dances, D. 420 – Fantasie in C Major, D. 605a “Grazer Fantasy”
Trudelies Leonhardt, Fortepiano.
“Marvellous Schubert !.. and one is ﬁlled with wonder at Trudelies Leonhardt’s talent to serve his cause ! Her playing is sober, full of eloquent expression, however without any sentimentality. All is there: incisive accents of a perfectly mastered instrument, the remarkably clear phrasing and, above all, this subtile rubato, privileged mode of expression of the fortepiano”.
“Trudelies Leonhardt is a master of phrasing who lets “speak” motifs and melodies”.
M. T., Stockholm
“What playing ! What feeling of well-being ! What grandeur ! These records were a revelation to me, to say the least… To my mind, this marks the beginning of a new era in interpretation on the fortepiano”.
