Georg Kreisler has become known to a wide audience as a satirist. But today, only few still know his purely pianistic oeuvre of high virtuoso quality. 'My piano sonata is difficult to play, but when I wrote it about sixty years ago, I still was a good pianist. I did not need to make it easy for me and for other pianists either.' For Kreisler, art does not claim to make it easy for the recipient, but it is worth discovering it piece by piece.
