In the sequence of teachers whose legacy I am glad and thankful to have received in continuing line from Georg Albrechtsberger up to my own Prof the Link between Franz Liszt and Edwin Fischer would be Martin Krause. But like Karl Heinrich Barth the Liszt student Martin Krause concentrated himself (like most of his well known Students in the early 20th century) on the challenge to interpret the exsisting Repertoire without composing additional own music.

As kind of a placeholder I present here three world first recoirdings of Pieces by the likewise Liszt-Student and Interpret of classical Pianorepertoire Sophie Menter (1846-1910) of which the Etude op.8 was explicitly dedicated to her good Friend and collegue Martin Krause,  Like Martin Krause Sophie Menter was not only a close friend of Franz Liszt but was also like Martin Krause nearly exclusivly focussed on interpretation of the Pianistic repertoire of which you can find still several of her Recordings in YT-Videos but none of any of her few own compositions. So here you can obviously listen them for the very first time, what brings my Steinway exploration even a step closer to that kind of less or unknown ambitious Repertoire I usually am interested most to realise it with dedicated Samplesets.:

Mazurka op.6

Etude en sixtes op.8

Etude op.9

Listening to those brilliant Pianostudies makes it a bit easier to understand why Franz Liszt called Sophie Menter the "best female Pianist of her Time".

four parallel interpretations of ambitious classical scores with up to twelve different Libraries

currently the first four Symphonies of L.v.Beethoven completly recorded with the finest available orchestra samplelibraries (BBCSO, SSO, STO)

Currently 4330 mp3 with more than a whole Week (=more than 8 Days /=nearly 200 hours) of sample based interpretations of complete Scores from 7 Centuries
