„Following our first encounter on 7. June 2015 in Hamburg on the occasion of our concert with the Winterreise of Schubert, which proved to be a wonderful experience, and considering our perfect mutual understanding, I wondered whether Christoph Prégardien would be interested in a CD project. But what repertoire? Usually the Lieder aficionados are not interested in piano and pianophiles do not seem to be Lieder fans… Then I thought, how about bringing together those two categories of the human species? Suddenly… EURÊKA! (Thank you, Archimedes!) The concept would be a combination of German Lieder, each of them followed by a piano transcription. Christoph Prégardien immediately agreed.” (Cyprien Katsaris)

“Exceedingly satisfied with our musical collaboration on our Brahms/Schumann recording, I suggested to Helene Mercier that we take on the complete cycles of Brahms’s 21 Hungarian Dances and 16 Waltzes, Op.39, which, unlike me, she had already played in concert.

It was extremely important to both of us that the gypsy spirit was to the fore in the Hungarian Dances, likewise Viennese elegance in the Waltzes. I must humbly acknowledge how impressed I was by my Quebecoise partner’s level of understanding of this very distinctive music. All her musical suggestions that broke with the usual rules made sense, and we tried never to lose sight of the improvisatory character symbolising the freedom of the Gypsies.” (Cyprien Katsaris)
