Notes & Reviews:

It is the rare pianist that doesn't long for a larger hand span to meet the demands of the modern piano keyboard and the masterworks composed for it. In this recital of well-loved works for piano, Carol Leone breaks new ground by performing on a single American Steinway 'D' fitted with three unique keyboards, each having different key widths. As the recital progresses from 18th century to 20th century repertoire, Leone chooses a keyboard with progressively narrower keys, allowing for ideal mastery of the repertoire and sound production from the instrument.
