 Tatjana Blome Soloist

 Gerhard Frommel rejected vapid pre-war Nationalism and Schoenberg’s dodecaphony, finding his voice in individuality and tradition. His highly contrasting Piano Sonatas are rooted in a blend of romanticism and the rhythmic propulsion of Stravinsky, articulated with tenderness in No 1, clownish grotesquerie in No 2, and sensual impressionism in No 3.

"These fascinating sonatas came as a real discovery to me. I was afraid they’d be too old-fashioned for my taste…but Frommel’s skill, resourcefulness, and strength of personality carried me along as I found one thing after another to marvel at and delight in. Much of this pleasure is due of course to pianist Tatjana Blome, who plays with admirable clarity, authority, and vivacity, and is captured in Grand Piano’s clear, strong, and immediate sonics. Listeners wanting to hear more by Frommel might ... hope for a second volume of the piano sonatas from Tatjana."
Mark L Lehman - American Record Guide - July 2012

"The mysterious, fantastical environs of Piano Sonata No. 1 in F sharp minor, in all its neo-romantic splendour eventually yields to the eerily sharp harmonic phrasing of the second sonata—Op. 10—which in many ways serves as the antithesis to the first composition. Finally, Piano Sonata No. 3 beguiles with its numinous expressions, channeled effectively through the dancing fingers of pianist Tatjana Blome. A rapturous sojourn."
