Description: Linguist, journalist, choir-leader, song-writer, historian, literary philologist, encyclopaedist and more, Hermann has long been recognized as one of the founders of Estonian national awakening. In spite of his cultural and historical significance, his piano output has been overloked until now. Bearing Estonian, German and French titles, these are charming miniatures, blending echoes of Chopin and Grieg with the essence of Estonian folksong. Nicolas Horvath (piano).
