Jonathan Powell, piano

The music of the Czech-born Viennese composer Egon Kornauth (1891–1959) was once a staple of Austrian concert-halls, though it has largely been forgotten in the half-century since his death. In this pioneering recording Jonathan Powell uncovers the many strands that fed into Kornauth’s rich and full-blooded soundworld – dark, late-Romantic harmony, inventive counterpoint, rhythmic assiduity, a fondness for folk-music and, not least, a straightforward melodic charm.
