Although Schoenberg is often seen as a composer strictly concerned with pitch, his interests in timbre and sonority are ever-present in all five of his completed piano works. Pianist Yoko Hirota performs three of Schoenberg’s completed works along with the 17 fragments that he never brought to completion. Hirota, praised as being "precise and keenly projective" and demonstrating the "highest level of proficiency," is one of the leading interpreters of contemporary piano repertory, and she brings Schoenberg’s compositions to life with conviction.
