Concert, Interview and CD-presentation

Besides his recital with compositions of Bach and Chopin Burkard Schliessmann will be in discussion and interview with Dr. Constantin Lachner, where Schliessmann talks about Chopin and his influences and inspirations from Joh. Seb. Bach.

More, STEINWAY & SONS will present Schliessmann's new release 'Chronological Chopin' (Divine Art, ddc 25752, 3 SACD; Distribution NAXOS Intl.) which received worldwide highest critical acclaim. A landmark recording.

James Harrington from American Record Guide writes in issue March/April 2016: "I rank this Chopin among the best available. With both the technique and intellect to do just about any-thing he wants, Schliessmann's strength is in the lyrical, legato melodies that make Chopin's music such a cornerstone of the piano reper-toire. I would go out of my way to hear Schliessmann play any group of these in concert. His approach to all of the music is worthy of study and repays careful lis-tening. The piano sound is spectacular and the booklet notes informative and comprehensive.”
