This recording was made when Kitcher was 21 years old. It began as part of a senior thesis completed in 2003 at Columbia College and was made possible by grants from the office of the Dean and the Columbia music performance program.
Music by Gluck-Scambati, Schubert, Debussy, Santoro, Camargo Guarnieri.
“Another student of the distinguished Brazilian pianist William Daghlian, Charles Kitcher presents a handsome program which includes a wonderfully virile yet sensitive, intelligent account of Schubert’s “Wanderer” Fantasy. Kitcher’s interpretation of Camargo Guarnieri’s Ponteio No. 49, is arguably the best performance available on record.”
