Repertoire written for Paul Wittgenstein

Here’s our longlist of works written for Paul Wittgenstein. Apart from the marvelous Quintets by the Viennese composer Franz Schmidt we have a range of works by the blind composer Josef Labor, that exist only in handwritten facsimile version. The quintet of Indian-born Ernest Walker, quartets and trios by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Hans Gál and Franz Schmidt’s pupil Walter Bricht complete the exciting collection.

Together with other piano solo pieces for the left hand and the regular trio and quartet repertoire they form a beautiful starting point for our programmes.
