Pianist Shai Wosner has gained international recognition for his creative insight and broad range of repertoire, ranging from Beethoven and Mozart to Schoenberg and Ligeti. I recently had the chance to talk with him about his new recording (released June 3), which pairs concertos and solo pieces by Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) and György Ligeti (1923-2006). He is joined on the recording by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, lead by conductor Nicholas Collon.
Take a listen as Shai discusses the challenges of tying together compositions from different centuries, as well as his affinity for the music of Franz Schubert.
Yours in good music,
