MARGARITIS L: Etude No. 1 / Greek Rhapsody / Youth / Verses / Piano Sonatina 

 

PETYREK F: 6 Greek Rhapsodies (Palios)

Loris (Lykourgos) Margaritis was a distinguished Greek composer, performer and music-educator. He cultivated a spirit of music-universalism, reinvestigating the delicate balance between German Romanticism, French Impressionism and Modernism in his multi-layered music. The varied, highly individual pieces on this recording often possess a dreamlike, nostalgic, timeless quality which Schumann or Debussy would have appreciated. An enthusiastic advocate of Margaritiss music, Felix Petyrek composed many piano works, including the Six Greek Rhapsodies, which use local scales and structural principles.

Order

These recordings continue a great tradition: beginning in the music circles of the aristocracy and in the concert life of the 19th century, music for 4 pianists has been highly popular. It is well known that Chopin and Liszt used to perform together with colleagues music for eight hands, as they did, for example, in 1838 in Rouen playing such a transcription of Beethoven's 8th symphony. Since that time, numerous ambitious and brilliant original compositions for four pianists have been created of which the Norwegian works by Bjørn Kruse, Trygve Madsen and Wolfgang Plagge are among the most outstanding. 


The Aurora Quartett is a renowned international ensemble of pianists that is dedicated especially to the performance of music for four pianists and with this CD makes its debut with 2L.
