SHAI WOSNER: Schubert and Missy Mazzoli
"The pianist Shai Wosner again proves himself a fine Schubertian with a gorgeously phrased and soulful interpretation of the “Moments Musicaux” (D. 780) that traverses the full palette of intimacy and power. He brings similarly vivid contrasts to his elegant, wholly satisfying performance of Schubert’s Piano Sonata No. 20 in A (D. 959), enhanced by his beautifully warm touch. Appropriately sandwiched between the two works is Missy Mazzoli’s alluring “Isabelle Eberhardt’s Dreams of Pianos,” which meshes evocative wisps of Schubert into a turbulent, digitally enhanced soundscape." (Vivien Schweitzer)
Album features works by Schubert and Mazzoli’s Isabelle Eberhardt Dreams of Pianos.
“Curiously addictive…using simple musical materials – a plaintive melody over gently rocking, repeated notes and occasional chordal exclamations in the bass register – Ms. Mazzoli conjures nostalgic longing in her own 21st century-voice.” – Barbara Jepson, Wall Street Journal
