Notes & Reviews:

Transcription is the genre most generously represented in Godowsky's compositional output, and the one for which he is best known; he made piano transcriptions (and études), of various kinds, from works by Bach, Schubert, Chopin, and others. But he also left another body of works whose originality and coherence continue to surprise: his piano paraphrases. This album features virtuosi "re-compositions" by several 19th and 20th century composers, some quite faithful to the originals, others deviating drastically from their sources. Carlo Grante's first six volumes of The Godowsky Edition have received world-wide acclaim.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
Music & Arts has excellent sound - more deeply sonorous than Hyperion. Grante's notes are all one could wish for, and the historical photographs included are well worth having. If I could have just one Grante recording, this would be it.
