Concertant: the new album by Matthias Kirschnereit

According to the Süddeutsche Zeitung he is the "poet at the piano": Matthias Kirschnereit releases his new album "Concertant" at Berlin Classics.

On this album he dedicates himself to Schumann's world-famous Piano Concerto, but also to the less well-known but no less impressive Concert Pieces for piano and orchestra. He is supported by the Konzerthausorchester Berlin under Jan Willem de Vriend.

"Robert Schumann is one of my favourite composers! And there are no end of works by him that are relatively unknown, even in the music fraternity," says Matthias Kirschnereit with eyes light up.

For many years now, he has been rated one of Germany's most successful pianists. His previous album, "Frei aber einsam" featuring recordings of works by Brahms, was recently acclaimed by critics and music-lovers alike. He has been successfully associated over many years with his musical partners on the Concertant album. Matthias Kirschnereit and the Konzerthausorchester Berlin under Jan Willem de Vriend have produced an album full of calm virtuosity, authentic insights and an ardent passion for Robert Schumann on Concertant.

The album will be released March 22nd 2019.
