RAFF, J.: Piano Works, Vol. 6 (Tra Nguyen)

Each piece on the sixth and final volume of this series demonstrates different aspects of Raff’s genius as a composer for the piano. The melodic richness of the early Six Poèmes, dedicated to Liszt who had rescued Raff from penury, contrasts with the deftly evocative scene-setting of Erinnerung an Venedig, which recalls a holiday in Venice. The intensely lyrical Fantaisie is complemented by the languid charm of the Barcarolle, and the recording closes with a virtuosic Valse brillante.
