Notes & Reviews:

'The pre-eminent Gottschalk interpreter of the 1980s and 1990s. Again the piano sound from the fastidious Hyperion team is absolutely flawless. Don't forget to buy the other two volumes' (Gramophone)

'Another distinguished addition to a most valuable cycle' (Fanfare, USA)

'Son interprétation explore ces pages souvent dépaysantes avec une vigeur rythmique et un souffle éblouissents' (Diapason, France)

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
It isn't only the playing here which gives such satisfaction, but the whole package is stylishly produced - Rousseau on the booklet cover and fine notes from Jeremy Nicholas. The piano sound from the fastidious Hyperion team is flawless. Martin, operating in a context where some pianists can hardly play softly at all, has a ravishing pianissimo. This makes O ma charmante and the perennial - but highly original - The lasthope simply enchanting. Gottschalk is a real melodist. Martin understands the intimacies of the salon but he also lacks nothing in his transcendental virtuosity.

The more flamboyant numbers, such as Tournament Galop prove this. About 10 years after Gottschalk's death, his pianist colleague, Artur Napoleão, made a piano arrangement of the first movement of Symphony No 1 (Night in the tropics) which Martin includes here. It's slightly drab compared with the orchestral version and soon feels repetitive. But don't let that put you off this outstanding continuation of Martin's Gottschalk series.
