Schoenberg: Complete Piano Works


Italian pianist Pina Napolitano performs Schoenberg's complete piano works, in a rendition that, fully realising the scores in all their complexity, animates the music and makes it dance, and "conveys its real quality as music - rather than as an object of academic study" (International Piano Magazine).

"A romanticism so exasperated that the usual musical indications of expressivity cannot convey it; each note is signed, tormentingly and assiduously, with indications that do nothing but speak to the insufficiency of language and of writing - of every language and every writing, even of the most absolute, the musical language - to express the idea and the thought, the sensation and the still indistinct feeling. Such a concentrated and dolorous romanticism, so essential, that it takes your breath away, a romanticism of the mind and of the heart, in which to feel and to think are not distinct." - Pina Napolitano
