AK Coburg recordings of Raff's Piano Suites

The small independent US label AK Coburg has quietly been building up an enviable reputation for CD recordings which combine intelligent virtuoso interpretation with high quality sound and scholarly insert essays. Thus far, it has restricted its repertoire to the chamber and piano music of Raff's younger contemporary, Felix Draeseke. Turning its attention to Raff himself, AK Coburg have now announced that their next four releases will feature all seven of his Piano Suites, together with the arrangements for piano which he made of JS Bach's six Suites for unaccompanied Cello.

The pianist is Alexander Zolotarev, who is no stranger to Raff enthusiasts as he made such a strong impression with his poetic reading of the first of the Bach Suite arrangements on his recent recording for the Ars label [review]. He uses new editions of each score, specially prepared for these recordings by the publisher of definitive Raff scores, Edition Nordstern.
