Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Regarded in his lifetime as one of the foremost composers of the romantic era, Raff was forgotten for most of the 20th century. Now his reputation is being restored as a new generation of performers and music lovers rediscover him and treasure his music's beauty and vitality. Vol. 3 of his complete solo piano works Includes world première recordings.

MusicWeb International
According to Grand Piano, these are all premiere recordings, and with almost 80 minutes of music, this must be considered a bargain for pianophiles even at full price. Its value is enhanced all the more by another top-class performance by Nguyen, her technical prowess augmented once again by an intuitive sense of expression and phrasing that brings this magical music to life.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
We have enjoyed this whole series so far. The main item here is the Opus 17 Lyric Album - 47 minutes. The notes will tell you about the confusion over Opus 17, but you will enjoy the music anyway. There are also five eclogues here, an impromptu, and a Fantasy Polonaise. It is certainly pleasant.
