"I didn't even know there was a Bösendorfer Imperial"
Paolo Giacometti about the music to be played: "That what that brilliant composer, that artist, wanted to say, that's what I'm trying to convey" Something Debussy's 'La cathédrale engloutie' certainly succeeds in doing. The piece was written especially for the Bösendorfer Imperial: "I have to admit to you that it is completely coincidental. I didn't even know there was a Bösendorfer Imperial, I found out later. Great!"

Debussy's sunken cathedral
What makes Debussy's piano prelude 'La cathédrale engloutie' so special? Actually, Claude Debussy is based on an old Celtic legend. Early in the morning a monumental cathedral rises from the clear seawater, to sink back into it around noon. Very suggestively you hear that back in the piano. Sometimes the grand piano sounds almost like an enormous organ (the radiant climax), then again you hear sounds of bells bubbling up from the deep water
Schubert's Impromptus, on. 142
Just as mysterious as Debussy's sunken cathedral sounds Schubert's Impromptus. Four beautiful piano pieces, which belong to the pinnacle of his piano music. Are they a continuation of his previous cycle of four piano pieces or is it just a secret sonata? In any case, Schubert was very satisfied with the third impromptu. Not only do we come across the music as stage music with Rosamunde, but Schubert also composed a string quartet that contains the same music.
