Heinz Tiessen: Piano Music

TOCC0291Cover

Although Heinz Tiessen (1887–1971) was one of the most prominent composers of the Weimar Republic, his music has largely been lost from sight. This first-ever survey of his most important piano works include Eine Natur-Trilogie, a substantial three-part symphonic poem for piano, and a number of shorter works. Together they show Tiessen’s ability to combine a variety of styles – neo-Baroque counterpoint, Straussian textural opulence, Schoenbergian expressionism and Hindemithian clarity – in a personal language that is generous in its gestures and direct in its appeal.
