WaltzesHTGCD258 – 5060332660391

Award winning German pianist Dirk Joeres plays waltzes by Brahms, Schubert and Dvorak to much critical acclaim.

65 minutes

‘Joeres catches splendidly the sense of rhythmic fun’
– Classic CD 4*

‘When this CD first appeared in 1996 it received a Supersonic Award. Entitled Waltzes for Piano, Dirk Joeres plays Schubert’s 6 German Dances and 12 Valses Nobles, Brahms’ 16 Waltzes Op. 39 and by Dvorak 8 Waltzes Op. 54. The 42 short works (most of them last about two minutes, the longest 4 minutes and 29 seconds) form a captivating programme. Dirk Joeres presents it with romantic lyricism, whereby his strict control of the expressive range and his supreme interpretative skill help to avoid any sentimentality or perfumed affectation’
– Remy Franck, Pizzicato February 2014
