VOŘÍŠEK, J.H.: Piano Works (Complete), Vol. 3 - 12 Rhapsodies (Urban)

Jan Hugo Voříšek, the ‘prodigy from Prague’, arrived in Vienna at the age of 22 and almost immediately earned the approval and admiration of Beethoven. His works foreshadow Schubert, Chopin and Schumann but he was so individualistic a composer that he resists easy categorisation either as a Classicist or a Romantic. This third and last volume of his complete piano works is devoted to the Twelve Rhapsodies, Op. 1, which extend the form of the scherzo in a lyrical vein suggestive of Brahms’ Two Rhapsodies, Op. 79.
