Description: One of those true rarities that seem to come out of nowhere, Buchholtz was a mostly self-taught Luxembourgeoise composer who wrote 138 pieces, the vast majority of which were unpublished and unknown until the two large suitcases they were in was opened in 1998. Showing no particular knowledge of the roiling contemporary musical currents, they exist in kind of Classical time warp although they are full of enough personal eccentricities and modern enough harmonies that no one could mistake them for being any earlier than they actually are. Marco Kraus (piano).
