Pianist Naum Grubert released a Beethoven Sonata album on Navis Classics. You would say, nothing new for a pianist to record this repertoire that belongs to the heart of the piano literature. However, in case of Naum Grubert it is important to mention that he waited until this point in his rich career to project his vision on Beethoven in a recording. Music he has carried along during his whole life finds his way to this album. The project is part of a series of recordings in which Naum will record more Beethoven Sonatas but also for instance a Chopin Recital program.
The start of a new label, Navis Classics! ‘Navis’ is the Latin word for ‘Ship’. It stands for co-operation between the label and extraordinary musicians. In the past years I worked with many inspiring artists and I wanted to offer them an extra opportunity to release their projects. When I started the label I was already in close contact with Mikhail Zemtsov and we talked about recording the Zemtsov Viola Quartet. All the quartet members come from the Zemtsov family and they all studied with the great virtuoso Viola player Michael Kugel. The family connection as well as the high musical level they share make it a unique ensemble.
