Collected together for the first time: the piano works of Kurt Schwertsik.

Albumblätter – 14 short works for friends, plus Cinque Nocturnes (Op 10b), Fantasia & Fuga (Op 105), Am Morgen vor der Reise (Op 119) and Eden-Bar Seefeld (Op 6). Includes contextual notes by the composer.

Kurt Schwertsik's music is mercurial and idiosyncratic with a refreshing lightness of touch. Though a pupil of Stockhausen, the composer rejected serialism in favour of new forms of tonality. His search for an 'alternative' modern culture draws inspiration from Satie and the Dada movement. His wide-ranging output includes operas, ballets, the Irdische Klänge orchestral cycle, concertos for violin, alphorn, guitar, double bass, timpani, flute and trombone, numerous song cycles and Nachtmusiken – a nocturnal orchestral journey through wartime Vienna.
