Odradek records on Spotify

It’s always a joy to look in new or old issues of the “gramophone” magazine. Beside the excellent reviews, the magazine (older copies certainly ;-) can be an inspring Spotify-guide. Not only the reviews, but also the advertisements, which led me to discoveries like the Liszt etudes by Jerome Rose and the fine Baroque-on-piano recordings by Jill Crossland. A while ago, my eye fell on an ad for a classical music label “… by artists with the odd sounding name “Odradek”. It certainly gives some weird associations in my native language (Dutch), but it prompted me to go to Spotify and type in “ label:odradek “ in the search bar (hint, that gives you search result by label). 
From the recordings found there , I would like to share two with your; a very original piano-transcription disc by the Japanese pianist Aki Kuroda and a very fine Schönberg piano works disc by Italian pianist Pina Napolitano. Explore them and I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did…!
