Notes & Reviews:

To complement the W.F. Bach CD by Anthony Spiri, it seemed appropriate to call attention to the person and works of Hssler with another CD release. He enjoyed great esteem during the 19th century as a successor to the "Bach tradition", alongside Friedrich Zelter and Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy; he is certainly of historical significance, not least as the founder of the so-called Russian piano school. His piano compositions and pedagogical works were long a mainstay of the repertoire. Anthony Spiri introduces some of them to us here.
