Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This 2-CD set presents music for piano by two of the most loved and prolific composers for that instrument who have ever lived, and who just happen to have been born the same year -- 1810. Schumann's contribution contains two of his most popular sets of character pieces, three other independent works, and the mighty Sonata in G minor, while Chopin's selections comprise one example of every single-piece genre in which he worked, including many of his greatest compositions. Pianist Findlay Cockrell, trained at Harvard and Juilliard, was on the faculty at the State University of New York at Albany for 40 years and enjoyed an active performance career as well. He shares some of his favorite repertoire with these recordings.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
The F-minor Fantasy is one of Chopin's strongest works. The Polonaise-Fantasy is just the controlled, expressive, and free flowing, it is one of the best performances in the album. The remaining Elude Op. 10:2 and Mazurka Op. 68:4 are effective enough. With good sound and distinguished notes supplied by the pianist, this is a most interesting collection. I was impressed.
