Notes & Reviews:

The wild originality of Alkan was little appreciated during his lifetime (1813 - 88), nor during the century which followed, when he was largely lost from sight. But now Alkan is increasingly recognized as one of the most individual personalities in music. The 5 albums he called Miniature Tone-Poems provide a gateway to his freewheeling imagination.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
I like complete sets, with all their variety; and given McCallum's ability to navigate Alkan's treacherous waters, this would be my preferred set. Excellent recording quality is something I have come to expect from Toccata; and this release, done in 2012 at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, is among the best. The booklet notes by Peter McCallum, professor of musicology at the University of Sydney, a classical music critic and husband of the pianist, are exemplary. I eagerly await the next volume.
