An outstanding composer-pianist who rose to fame in Paris and London during the early nineteenth century, Friedrich Kalkbrenner is an artist whose music has unjustly fallen into oblivion, despite an abundant and varied corpus of works. The world-premiere recording of his transcription of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphonv enables to discover the inventiveness of his piano writing as well as the musical practices of his time.
