Maurice Steger – new CD “Souvenirs d’Italie”

Heard the latest? On November 11, Maurice Steger will be publishing long forgotten, yet to be heard works on his latest CD, delightfully entitled Souvenirs d’Italie.

In the archive of Austria’s Count of Harrach, who frequently travelled to Italy as a diplomat and viceroy of Naples, Maurice Steger uncovered a fascinating collection of unique musical souvenirs, which the count, an avid player of the recorder, brought back from his travels. He specially commissioned some of the works for his own use while collecting others as an enthusiast. Maurice Steger has now rediscovered these long forgotten gems and recorded delightful, yet to be heard sonatas, chamber music pieces and concerts pairing them with well known works. The new recording promises to delight listeners!

In addition to the sound of the Baroque from Handel, Purcell and Vivaldi, Maurice Steger will also present the Sammartini souvenir together with the hr symphony orchestra. After his successful debut last year, he will once again join the orchestra to perform in Frankfurt and during the Kasseler Musiktage. With these souvenirs on board, he will head home to present the spoils of the count’s travels together with frequent collaborator, the Zurich Chamber Orchestra.
