Released: Jan 2013
Label: Oehms Classics
Since bursting on the scene as a piano prize-winner in the mid-2000s, Schuch has shown a desire to play lesser-known works in addition to the classics. Here he does his duty on behalf of a warhorse -- Beethoven's third concerto -- though the album is frontloaded with a concerto by Viktor Ullmann, a composer first banned and later killed by the Nazis. Given the aggressive writing for brass and abrupt mood changes (all in under 20 minutes), you can see why this piece hasn't attracted many star pianists, as it's not a pure vehicle for virtuosity. But Schuch loves it, and his energy is infectious.
