Notes & Reviews:

Medtner's reputation has been overshadowed by the more showy works of his friend and contemporary, Rachmaninov, but his music, with its dark mysticism and ravishing lyricism, is well worth investigating. Georfrey Tozer's substantial recorded survey of Medtner's music has helped generate new interest in his works.
