The Recording (also available as mp3 download) sheds light on the genre of songlike solo piano pieces founded by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy (1809-1847), which capture the songful poetic moment of piano playing in musical miniatures. Marie-Luise Alcántara devotes herself to classical piano composition and juxtaposes works by Mendelssohn with those of selected contemporaries. Through pieces by Darius Milhaud (1892-1974) and Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924) she builds a bridge to the 20th century, to which Victor Alcántara dedicates himself from the perspective of jazz. Here he improvises on pieces of the jazz piano tradition such as Horace Silver’s (1928-2014) “Song for My Father” or Fred Hersch’s (*1955) “Heartsong”.
