That Vienna is one of the capitals (if not THE capital) of music is undisputed. With this recording, Elena Gaponenko has dedicated an entire album to the city on the Danube and the composers who have worked there. Really interesting is the time frame that these works originate from, they span exactly 25 years, from 1815-1840. In her introduction to this release Elena Gaponenko writes: "This recording should honour this enchantingly beautiful city as a great guardian of culture, as it has brought so many musical icons together and allowed them to develop creatively." Pianist and Cellist Elena Gaponenko has been an instructor at music academies in Vienna, Berlin, Frankfurt am Main, Duseldorf and Bremen since 2008.
