HELLER: VARIATIONS FOR PIANO - BILIANA TZINLIKOVA
Stephen Heller shares the year of his birth with Verdi and Wagner. His pen-pal Robert Schumann called him a “witty talent”, and listed him amongst his Davidsbündler. Everybody learning the piano knows his Melodic Etudes, but who knows his character pieces, variations, dances, Lieder? Listen to them on Biliana Tzinlikova’s pointy and intimate recording.
