German pianist and musicologist Herbert Henck has won much critical acclaim for his ECM recordings of works by important 20th-century composers such as Cage, Antheil, Mosolov, Mompou or Hans Otte and will receive a special prize for his lifetime achievement at this year’s Ernst von Siemens Preis. His new album offers world premier recordings of the surviving piano works by two masters about whose lives and careers almost nothing was known for more than half a century. Both of them adopted the twelve-tone system but while Johann Ludwig Trepulka (1903- 1945) followed the teachings of Josef Matthias Hauer, Norbert von Hannenheim (1898- 1945) took his inspiration from Arnold Schoenberg. The CD booklet includes an insightful essay on both composers and their respective works.
