Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Leopold Godowsky's stature as one of the world's great piano virtuosi was maintained until a stroke ended his performing life in 1930. But, allied to his prodigious gifts as a performer, he also published a series of original compositions and transcriptions for the piano. In this twelfth volume of Konstantin Scherbakov's critically acclaimed series, the focus falls on the delectable Six Waltz-Poems for the left hand and on an ingeniously crafted series of song transcriptions of well-known music by Schumann, Brahms, Schubert and also Carl Bohm. Godowsky additionally pays homage to Kreisler with his delicious transcription of the Rondino on a theme of Beethoven.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Scherbakov is a good advocate for these technically challenging works. The Waltz- Poems, have more of a romantic inflection. These works are pleasant and Scherbakov's good sense and refinement hold the listener's interest. The transcriptions, such as the Rondino (after Kreisler) and the 'Vergebliches Standchen' (after Brahms), are charming. People following this series will enjoy this recording.
