about this recording:
In remembrance to the tradition, writing a cycle of piano pieces for
experiences on different dispositions, I started to plan three sonatinas.
These sonatinas should be a more important tribute to a light and
undervalued musical genre. Sonatina in this context does not mean the
little silly sister of the greater Sonata, easily find in Clementi's
type of sonatina. In its variety of freely organized movements it
represents a concentrate form of the grande sonate pour le pianoforte.
(Fredrik Schwenk) Being equally well acquainted with the piano, the
harpsichord and the fortepiano Andreas Skouras' repertoire is huge. He
works intensively with composers like Kagel, Schwenk, Kiesewetter,
Acker, Stadlmair, Schtschedrin, Borboudakis a. m. o., many of which
wrote pieces especially for him.
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) sonata in G Hob. XVI:40, I Allegretto e
innocente, II Presto; Fredrik Schwenk (*1960): first sonatina, I un
poco capriccioso, II Scherzo: to ludwig fun ...; Joseph Haydn: sonata in B Hob. XVI:41, I Allegro, II Allegro di molto; Fredrik Schwenk:
second sonatina; Joseph Haydn: sonata in D Hob. XVI:42, I Andante
con espressione, II Vivace assai; Fredrik Schwenk: third sonatina:
Entzauberung, Ist. movement, IInd. movement, IIIrd. movement.
