About the album

This is the second recording in Martin Roscoe’s survey of the complete solo piano music of Ernö Dohnányi (1877–1960). While the first volume (CDA67871) featured works spanning Dohnányi’s entire career, this recording focuses on compositions from 1897 to 1907, when Dohnányi was still establishing himself within the great lineage of composer–pianists. 

Dohnányi composed his Four Piano Pieces, Op 2, in 1896 and 1897, while he was still a student at the National Hungarian Royal Academy of Music in Budapest (now known as the Franz Liszt Academy). The work’s dedicatee, Dohnányi’s fiancée Elsa Kunwald, would later become his wife and the mother of his children Hans and Margaret, whose diminutive nicknames were Hansel and Gretel.
