Description
German pianist Gerlint Böttcher performs selections from the captivating Twelve Rhapsodies for Piano, op. 1, by Czech composer Jan Václav Vorišek [1791–1825], pieces which compare favorably to those of Robert Schumann and Felix Mendelssohn. The word "impromptu" was first used to describe a composition by Vorišek, and the concept helped to inspire his friend Franz Schubert to write his Four Impromptus for Piano, D 899/op. 90, also heard here in an elegant performance by Böttcher. It is interesting to note that upon Schubert's death at age 31, he was buried in the same cemetery as his similarly short-lived peer Vorišek, and their mutual hero Beethoven was laid to rest there as well.

"The performance is clear and delicate, Gerlint Böttcher's style matching [Vorišek's] style of composition wonderfully.… The endless scales in Impromptu No. 2 acquire a speaking character in Gerlint Böttcher's interpretation, and the accompaniment in No. 3 … has seldom been so clear and yet so delicate. The dialog in the middle part of No. 1 is also wonderfully contrasted and songful."—American Record Guide
