Notes & Reviews:

Although these pieces are known and respected among pianists by reputation, the sonatas themselves are rarely heard or performed. This recording is one of only four recordings of these pieces in print, and of those only one other was performed on piano, the instrument for which these sonatas were written. This is the only piano recording of these pieces to make use of historically informed practices. The pieces are accessible and exciting additions to Classical-era repertoire, and are suitable for working concert pianists, advanced piano students, or teachers who are looking for new repertoire.

An effortlessly musical performer.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
David Murray teaches at Georgia Southern University and studied with Robert Hamilton and Stewart Gordon. His technique is exquisitely suited to this music: the textures are clean and well-articulated, the tempos supple, ornamentation marvelously incisive and controlled. He follows the scores faithfully and shapes the music expressively. I'm happy that he treats the music with the respect that it deserves: with his intelligence and technique.
