The programme of the German pianist Mario Häring includes the set of variations on Schubert’s German Dance D643 (1819) which was the experimentalist Helmut Lachenmann’s first published piece (1956).
Still in his early twenties, the Chinese pianist Xinyuan Wang brings together two composers, Schubert in expansive mode in his 1825 sonata and Bartók at his most percussive in his example from 1926.
