Description of Style

Marsoner’s interpretations have above all to do with exploring a work’s emotional and formal content. This is also how she selects her repertoire: it is above all lyrical, lucid and challenging works like Bach’s “Goldberg Variations,” Beethoven’s final Sonata op. 11, Berg’s Sonata op. 1 and Furrer’s Drei Klavierstücke.

Press Reviews

June 2008

When she strikes a chord, one has the feeling that she sets something vibrating beyond just the harmony in question, something for which that chord was only the catalyst. And when she forms a theme, her playing emanates a tension that arises from her becoming acquainted with the theme without first wanting to answer the question of where it will finally end up.
