…here we have total delight from beginning to end of a varied, well filled and recorded disc.
The Zarebski is indeed by some way the most impressive work here: impassioned, varied, and well constructed. The composer was a piano student of Liszt and the music is clearly strongly influenced by him in style. The rhetorical gestures, phrases recurring between movements, the general eloquence and the sheer beauty of sound all catch the listener’s attention right from the start and do not let go. I have been unable to obtain a score or to listen to other versions, but what is heard here sounds extremely convincing to my innocent ears, with no lack of conviction from the performers.
I was uncertain what to expect when I received this disc, but it gave immense pleasure from beginning to end. © MusicWeb International Read complete review
