If classical music has a capital, it is Vienna, home to Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Mahler, Johann Strauss, Schoenberg and many others. Incredibly, the works on this recording were all written in Vienna in the space of just 40 years. Included are late works of Mozart and Haydn, Beethoven’s powerful “Pathetique” Sonata and Schubert’s Opus 90 Impromptus, to many his greatest set of piano of pieces. As an encore: a charming etude by Beethoven’s student, Carl Czerny.

“...a recital worthy of enthusiastic applause...joy and sprightly precision ... feeling and technical polish…” AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE

“Moyer’s deft and lyrical touch - even in the most demanding passages - reminds you just how beautifully the piano can sing in the right hands.” KDFC RADIO
