Notes & Reviews:

When I started the recording in September 2001 with the excellent piano duo Lucius / Veit - alongside rarely heard works for piano four hands by Max Reger, Claude Debussy, Erwin Schulhoff and Felix Mendelssohn - the Sonata in Blue by Gordon Sherwood, I did not know that this wonderful composer had written his music after a long odyssey as a tramp under the Seine bridges in Paris. Almost a year ago Sherwood died at the age of 84 in Schongau / Bavaria (Germany). It is the merit of Henning Lucius and Matthias Veit, who have snatched this sonata out of the oblivion. I am glad that this CD has now been re-released. -- Joachim Krist (Producer)
