Notes & Reviews:

Catchy and full of "ear worms," the music of Ludwig Thuille is not nearly as well-loved as it deserves. This new release of his complete keyboard works with pianist Alasdair Beatson and organist David Dunnet aims to change that, showing the wide range and changing style of Thuille's works across his all-too-brief lifetime.

Thuille's elegant, sophisticated character pieces are given performances in kind by Mr. Beatson, who plays with an understated musicality and just the right measures of restraint and display...

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Beatson plays the slower pieces con amore and considerably slower, and the faster pieces slightly faster than Urban. There can be no question that Beatson makes a greater meal out of this music. The Threnody of Op.37 is once again the most striking and advanced piece. Taken at a faster tempo. David Dunnett makes the most of this early impressive work. Superlative sound.
