Info for Schubert
Die beiden gewichtigen Schubert-Sonaten D 958 und D 845 werden von der jungen chinesischen Pianistin Ran Jia gespielt, die mit der Musik Schuberts bei mehreren Konzerten schon für Aufsehen sorgte.
Auf dem Album verbindet sie die Musik Schuberts mit einer Komposition ihres Vaters, dem chinesischen Komponisten Jia Daqun. Sein Werk „Three Preludes for Piano Solo“ verbindet dabei Elemente traditioneller chinesischer Musik mit einer Hommage an Schubert.

Ms.Jia made an acclaimed European recital debut at the Klavierfestival Ruhr in the summer of 2008 playing two Schubert sonatas. The press commented “She refines each moment, each development, each transition of a melody to the next...With marvelous impressive elegance in touch she feels her way into Schubert’s language – sometimes with dolorous sweetness, sometimes with thunderous rage, then again with a sparkling style, to then go back to a Beethovian energy. There are no fractures, no stutters, no technical hurdles – with this pianist the structures and sounds flow naturally on its own...Tremendous.”
