Viennese pianist Till Fellner, a one-time student of Alfred Brendel, performs classics from the German tradition of music for the keyboard. Opening with Mozart's reflective Rondo in A minor, he continues with four of Bach's Preludes and Fugues, in which Bach explores a great range of texture and expression. After Haydn's sparkling Piano Sonata in D major, the second half is devoted to Schumann's 'Davidsbündlertänze', dances evoking the composer's two contrasting alter egos, the extrovert Florestan and the introvert Eusebius. Mozart: Rondo in A minor for Piano K511; Bach: Prelude and Fugue in D BWV874, Prelude and Fugue in D minor BWV875, Prelude and Fugue in E flat BWV876, Prelude and Fugue in D sharp minor BWV877; Haydn: Piano Sonata in D HobXVI/37; and Schumann: Davidsbündlertänze op.6.
