Pianistic Koffler

The Polish pianist Elżbieta Sternlicht, a student of Zbigniew Drzewiecki and Vlado Perlemuter, has recorded the complete piano works of J. Koffler for the label Acte Préalable – and for this she deserves special recognition.

In her interpretation, the pianist coaxed a wide palette of colourful nuances out of Koffler’s work, making the hitherto unknown pieces accessible in an extremely appealing manner.

The world premier recording of J. Koffler’s piano works is undoubtedly a commendable achievement. The recordings were made possible by the charitable foundations Waldemar Koch Stiftung and Stiftung ZURÜCKGEBEN.
