A pianist with “a winning combination of powerful fingers, rhapsodic freedom and emotional involvement” (Chicago Tribune), Andrew von Oeyen traverses the world of melody with Debussy’s Estampes and then enters the dream world in Schumann’s Humoreske. Chopin’s B-minor Nocturne and Third Sonata also dance in the twilight character space that marks the composer’s greatest contribution to music, invoking songlike themes that drift between nightmare and dulcet dream.
