Notes & Reviews:

'More glowing Gottschalk from Martin... a real enchantment from start to finish. This series is another immaculate Hyperion production [and] nobody is better qualified than Philip Martin to play it all for us' (Gramophone)

'This disc is a constant delight' (Piano International)

'Go for it!' (Fanfare)

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
CD that hasn't been recorded by Philip Martin, the ideal exponent, but here's another whole collection of surprises - again a real enchantment from start to finish. It's interesting to hear Gottschalk's Op 1, the Polka de salon, published in Paris, which he wrote in his mid-teens. No particular character yet but genuine charm. More typical of the pianist-composer as pop star is Elcocoyé, which gives a local carnival tune a flashy setting and brought the house down for Gottschalk's first recital in Havana in 1854. Solitude is a pretty nocturne inspired by Lamartine, Chopinesque but simpler. The middle section is a fine example of Martin's totally natural, relaxed melodic playing which perfectly fits the serenity of Gottschalk's lyricism. Martin knows how to pace Gottschalk's Caribbean syncopations, too, and is up to all the pyrotechnics.
