RAFF, J.: Piano Works, Vol. 1 (Tra Nguyen)

Although Raff is remembered primarily as one of the foremost symphonists of his day, by far his largest output was for the piano. The three works recorded here date from his early years in Weimar, and include the newly discovered Fantaisie. One of Raff’s first successes, Frühlingsboten portrays nature in many-layered miniature scenes. The Drei-Klavier-Soli concludes with one of Raff’s greatest piano pieces, Metamorphosen.
