Notes & Reviews:

Since 1989 this series of Danacord recordings has been making the highlights of each 'Rarities of Piano Music' festival available to a wider audience. What sets these concerts apart is that they attract audiences - and performers - with a penchant for the unusual. This latest disc is the perfect example, with recognizable performers like Roland Pontinen and Cecile Licad sharing the stage with pianists who are on their way to being household names, with lesser-known music by Medtner, Vladigerov, Florent Schmitt and even a couple of "pop" composers like Corea and Kern.
