Gabriele Carcano


Gabriele Carcano consciously took his time with this debut CD: “I waited such a long time in order to play a programme with which I can express who I am.” Beyond question, the Variations, Op. 9 on a Theme by Schumann had to be included. “I absolutely wanted to record them, because this work is so personal and so many reference points are contained within it” – especially the composer’s proximity to Schumann and then his predilection for the variation genre. This exclusively Brahms programme is completed by the Sonata, Op. 5 right at the beginning and the Scherzo in E-flat minor, Op. 4 at the end of the CD.
