Pianist Benjamin Hochman follows his critically acclaimed AVIE debut Homge to Schubert (AV 2281) – which paired two sonatas by the 19th century master with modern day tributes by Kurtág and Widmann – with a like-minded program centred on the age-old musical form of variations. At the heart of the album is Handel Variations by Brahms, a grand master of the art form. The four shorter Piano Variations on this recording are by major composers of the late 20th and early 21st century: Oliver Knussen, Luciano Berio, George Benjamin and Peter Lieberson. Each composition is a piece of great beauty but with results that are strikingly diverse.

critical acclaim for Benjamin Hochman

“excellent and inquisitive … vibrant and stylish” – The New York Times (on Homage to Schubert, AV 2281)

“Hochman is very virtuosic, indeed it’s just that virtuosity seems for him a true byproduct, a means of accessing music that interests him.?That was clear right from the start, when he made the Knussen variations sound easy and simple, flowing up and down the keyboard with a kind of hypnotic facility” – Washington Post

“Classical music doesn’t get better than this.” – The New York Times

summary

On Variations, pianist Benjamin Hochman explores an age-old art form with works ranging from Brahms’ Handel Variations to 20th and 21st century inspirations by George Benjamin, Luciano Berio, Oliver Knussen and Peter Lieberson.
