About this release

This new compilation presents a charming selection of piano music for children. Alongside the familiar melodies of Beethoven’s Für Elise and Mozart’s Rondo alla Turca are Tchaikovsky’s Album for the Young and Debussy’s exuberant Children’s Corner, including the famous ‘Golliwog’s Cakewalk’. Robert Schumann’s playful Kinderszenen (Scenes from Childhood) include pieces with titles such as ‘At the Fireside’, ‘Frightening’ and ‘Blind Man's Bluff’, which are sure to enchant children of all ages. The orchestral players of ‘Prima La Musica’ join the piano for the well-known Andante from Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.21, with its dreamlike melody heard in the violin and piano parts. Children will undoubtedly be captivated by the variety of delightful music offered in this tailor-made collection.

Hungarian pianist Klára Würtz is one of Brilliant Classics’ most prolific artists, enjoying an international career. Having won prizes in Dublin and Milan, she signed to a New York-based management company, leading to performances at Carnegie Hall and other prestigious concert venues throughout the US and Canada. She currently teaches at the Conservatory of Arts in Utrecht.

This CD is a reissue of one of the most successful Brilliant Classics recordings, Piano Music for Children, a simple and powerful concept aimed at a wide audience of music lovers, teachers, parents, grandparents and (of course..) children.
Included are the popular Kinderszenen by Robert Schumann, Children’s Corner by Claude Debussy and a selection from the Album for the Youth by Tchaikovsky, and not to forget the most iconic work for a child ever written: Beethoven’s Für Elise.
Hungarian pianist Klára Würtz plays with a natural, direct expression, warm and communicative.
