 Benjamin Moser Soloist


Benjamin Moser has selected an anthology of Russian piano music for his album debut. With this release, he introduces a piano repertoire chapter that is particularly dear to his heart as it has accompanied him in a special way since childhood. The selection of works by Medtner, Prokofiev, Rachmaninov, Skriabin und Tchaikovsky mainly offers pieces that are rather seldom heard yet also a few more popular compositions, such as four Rachmaninov Préludes plus Prokofiev’s great Sonata No. 7. Benjamin Moser was born in Munich in 1981. He started studying piano with Michael Schäfer at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich and is currently studying with Klaus Hellwig in his master class at the University of the Arts in Berlin. In 2007, he won the Moscow Tchaikovsky Competition as well as the Young Concert Artists’ Competition in New York.


Russian Piano Music
Benjamin Moser writes about the works on this album and the overall concept and feelings that went into their selection: For years, I have had an intensive preoccupation with Russian music – my interest began as far back as my childhood. All of the composers recorded here are linked to or have more or less direct relationships with each other. For me, the attraction of this compilation is discovering the commonalities and interrelationships, but also the individual characteristics of each work. The dominant theme here is the extreme emotional range of the music: love, sorrow, hope, desperation, longing, joy, tragedy, heroism… the list is endless. All of the works on this recording are equally important to me. Even if virtuosity is an important aspect, I principally try to use this in service of the music, never the other way around.
