Martin Sturfalt piano Bach/Kempff Sinfonia from Wir danken dir Gott wir danken dir BWV29 Emil Sjogren Prelude & Fugue in D minor Op. 39 Nielsen Chaconne Op. 32 Debussy Pour le piano Anders Nilsson Chaconne Brahms Two gigues Wo04 Liszt Variations on Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Za Martin Sturfelt will introduce some of the many Swedish composers who have enriched the musical world with their fine compositions. Emil Sjogren, with preludes and fugues, Carl Nielsen, whose style is very personal, and Anders Nielson who represents the modern world of Swedish composition. The Gigues by Johannes Brahms will bring you back into the Romantic time and the Variations by Franz Liszt will allow the pianist to show his dexterity on the keyboard. The composition "Pour le piano" was begun in 1894, finished in 1901 and was Debussy's first major work for solo piano to be published. For one contemporary critic the suite had "the force of a programme, if not a manifesto". Another wrote that it was a work dedicated "not to instrumentalists but to the instrument itself."
