Notes & Reviews:

Peter Katin writes: "The fascination of performing these Impromptus on a square piano lies, for me, in the fact that throughout my career I have played them on modern instruments with their particular dynamic and tonal structure. The change to the very different qualities of a square piano has made me aware of yet further possibilities in the tonal coloring, which in turn has inevitably had an effect on my interpretation. It is not a matter of compromising simply because the square piano has a considerably smaller basic sound than a modern one, as compromise is out of the question when interpreting. It is necessary to understand that here is a different and special sound-world, and the player has to understand that an equally valid interpretation is possible within that sound-world.
