Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Here is the world premiere recording of Gottschalk's "concerto" on Mehul's overture "La Chasse de jeune Henri," La Caza del Joven Enrique pro Mehul (1861), scored for five pianos and an orchestra of 112 players, a work unknown to Robert Offergeld and only discovered in 2003. The brass parts in this piece are particularly effective and demonstrate Gottschalk's affinity for the music of Hector Berlioz to the same degree that his solo piano music shows his affinity with Chopin... An unexpected treat is Rosenberg's wonderful arrangement of Gottschalk's "Ave Maria," sung by early music specialist Melissa Barrick, who treats the piece as though sung by an expert boy soprano rather than in a standard operatic voice. This "Ave Maria" is so immediately appealing that it seems to have "coming to an NPR station near you" stamped all over it... established fans of the composer should be turning cartwheels over its arrival." -All Music
