Notes & Reviews:

This recording of essential piano repertoire from Johann Baptist Cramer brings together a strong trio of pianists, including Gianluca Luisi, whose Liszt recording for Naxos stunned Fanfare by being filled "with so much joy, as well as so much musical integrity". The artists on this recording of the complete Etudes bring us historically significant and musically satisfying repertoire which is virtually unknown on recordings.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
Pianists (or perhaps listeners) who are familiar with studies by Czerny or Hanon will be pleasantly surprised by Cramer's, which are short, graceful, and expressive works: his interest in Bach no doubt influenced the finelywrought polyphonic style detectable in them all. (I wonder whether they'd be played more often today were it not for Chopin's etudes.) The three pianists share the burden of recording them, and each treats the pieces as interesting, expressive music. For good measure, they add brilliant performances of Busoni's hypervirtuosic treatments of Cramer. The performances are uniformly virtuosic and the sound is fine.
