Description: Next volume of Hartmann’s extensive music for piano whose romantic tone, melodic charm and harmonies known from Schumann and Mendelssohn will come as a pleasant surprise to all lovers of romantic music for piano and often shows the atmosphere which became known as “The Nordic Tone”: serious, slightly somber without actually being gloomy, often rhythmically divergent from the expected, and with a strain of folk-music. Thomas Trondhjem (piano).
