Notes & Reviews:

"This is Grante's fifth volume of the complete piano music of Godowsky. Previous volumes on M&A include Schubert Transcriptions (984-Mar/Apr 1998), Bach Violin Sonatas (1039), Bach Cello Suites (1046), and his acclaimed Studies on Chopin Etudes (1093- Mar/Apr 2002). He is one of only a handful of pianists today that can bring off these monumentally difficult works. His ability to sort out the many levels of textures and harmonic complexities Godowsky adds to Chopin, Schubert, Schumann, Henselt, and Weber is astounding. I praised his Busoni and Vlad disc (Nov/Dec) for precisely the same reasons I praise him here; a world-class mastery of contemporary piano technique, the theoretical and compositional knowledge to analyze and understand everything on the printed page, and, most important, the musicality to make us forget all of the foregoing and simply enjoy these pieces." -ARG
