Notes & Reviews:

This marks the CD premiere of the piano transcription of the Franck violin sonata by Alfred Cortot - with new pianistic textures giving a special sonority to the unique harmonies of the masterpiece - paired with the Prélude, fugue et variation transcribed for piano by Harold Bauer. Domenico Codispoti plays with a beautiful blend of grandeur and intimacy and a wonderful transparency.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Domenico Codispoti's new recording of music by Franck, including the Alfred Cortot transcription of the Violin Sonata in A and Harold Bauer's arrangement for piano of the Prelude, Fugue, and Variation, Op. 18, contains refreshingly musical and self-effacing performances. The program concludes with the Prelude, Chorale, and Fugue - the only one of the three works presented here originally written for piano solo. The playing is impressively nuanced, especially in the prelude; the chorale and fugue are forceful. Three beautiful performances illuminate the delicate balance of musical values operating in the works of this under-appreciated French master.
