Eduard Stuermann: Three songs for lower voice to the words of Bert Brecht; from: Four Piano Pieces: III Theme with Variations

Anton Webern: Variations for piano op. 27
Johannes Brahms: Three Intermezzi op. 117; Intermezzo op. 118/2

"In any case, he plays my music like no one else: intellectually and technically; a brooding man, but of the greatest skill, seriousness, and extraordinary sense of tone color." This is how Arnold Schönberg described Eduard Steuermann, whose status as the unequalled pianist of the Second Viennese School all too easily obscures his universal artistic personality. The book "Eduard Steuermann - Musiker und Virtuose"  edited by Lars E. Laubhold and published in 2022, serves as an impetus for a concert that showcases Steuermann’s versatility and complexity.
