Felix Draeseke (1835-1913)
Sonata quasi Fantasia C sharp minor / cis-Moll op. 6

Franz Liszt (1811-1886)
Mosonyis Grabgeleit
Sonata in B minor / h-Moll

Claudius Tanski, piano


„Da serviert ein hochbegabter Pianist endlich eine ... überzeugende Version der Draeseke-Sonate.” (FonoForum)

”Tanski´s muscular volatility animates the present recording in the same way, that is, grandly ... one rather admires such ardent championship, and Tanski has much to give.” (Fanfare)
”Tanski invests the music with a bravura intensity, and brings the lightness of the salon to the halting waltz of the Intermezzo. Liszt´s B minor Sonata, of which Tanski gives a ferocious account as a companion piece. Nevertheless, there is a fascination to Draeseke´s forgotten work that will appeal to any student of the Romantic piano repertoire.” (BBC)
