Welcome to the latest episode of Harmonious World, featuring a conversation with pianist Michele Tozzetti, who has released an album of piano music by Niels Wilhelm Gade, who is sadly largely under-appreciated with a global audience.
This album features the collections Aquarelle, Phantasiestucke and the Sonata in E minor. There's a huge range of short, stand-alone pieces and the more challenging Sonata, which took the composer 15 years to complete.
This was a fascinating conversation and please do listen to the whole album if you can. Thanks to Michele for allowing me to play extracts from his album of the piano works of Niels Wilhelm Gade alongside our conversation.

Don't forget the Quincy Jones quote that sums up why I do this: "Imagine what a harmonious world it would be if every single person, both young and old, shared a little of what he is good at doing."
