Alexander Schimpf delivers an excellent Tombeau de Couperin, each movement highly individualized…the fugue is impressively delicate and well-voiced, the rigaudon really snaps under Schimpf’s strong rhythmic control, and the minuet is as expressive as anyone could wish.
Between the two big works we have a palate-cleanser, the five preludes which represent Scriabin’s last music. Schimpf does well here again…
