Audiophile Audition
Pianist Allison Franzetti is alert throughout to the mood swings that Weinberg's music is subject to and plays with both rhythmic agility and clarity and real care as to tone production. This is a very fine playing indeed. Excellent piano sound as well. Recommended as another important milestone on the road to redefining Weinberg's status among modern composers.
