Product Details


The present collection of piano pieces invites the musician on a journey - of the mind. Images described by the music emerge like musical picture postcards: Songs, dances, atmospheres, portraits stir up longings and memories. In 'Reisebilder' there are many composers who sing of their beloved home country in the language of folk music: the Norwegian Grieg, the Polish Chopin or Béla Bartók who saved the folk music of his Hungarian home country from oblivion with his recordings.
But there are also a large number who yearn to see distant places and describe the longed-for country of their dreams. Often, it is just the outward appearance which makes the peculiar characteristics of the strange and unknown stand out, the distance that makes it look mysterious, exotic and enticing: The Russian Tchaikovsky composed a 'German song', the German Schumann a Sicilian song. The Hungarian Takács portrayed 'Spanish Street Musicians', Felix Mendelssohn created several 'Venetian Gondola Songs'. 37 pieces from the 19th and 20th centuries - a journey into the large variety of piano music!
