Notes & Reviews:

During his lifetime Jan Ladislav Dussek was known as a piano and glass harmonica virtuoso, and it was said that he was one of the first to make the pianoforte sing. The present recording, the second volume featuring piano sonatas by this Bohemian composer, derives its special appeal from its joint presentation of an early sonata and the composer's last contribution to this genre. Dussek composed his three Sonatas op. 9 during his years as a traveling piano and glass harmonica virtuoso. It is not a collection put together without rhyme or reason but a carefully constructed cycle. All but two of the movements are obliged to the sonata principle, and as a whole they enthuse us with their manifoldness, contrasts within a brief space within the formal parts, and versicolor virtuosity.
