With his idiomatic and graceful style, pianist Philip Martin has established himself as the foremost exponent of Gottschalk. Much of his music is by no means easy to play; it requires an impeccable technique matched with Èlan and joie de vivre for its most effective execution. Although not essentially a great composer, Louis Moreau Gottschalk had a unique spontaneity and individuality which Martins performances bring vividly to the fore. The composers music was hugely popular during his lifetime and his works display a real melodic charm and a great sense of fun. Each of the eight discs in Martins extensive Gottschalk series has received wide acclaim and left pianophiles eagerly awaiting the next issue.

Genre: Classical | Label: First Hand Records | Catalog: FHR38

Violinist Vaughan Jones brings us a fascinating collection of 18th century solo works. Three hundred years after their first publication, Austrian composer Johann Joseph Vilsmayr's Six Partitas for Solo Violin are recorded here in their entirety for the first time. Johann Georg Pisendel was a famous Baroque violinist and composer. His fiendishly difficult Violin Sonata is an unpredictable, tempestuous and capricious work, showing great scope and ambition. To round out the recording, Jones plays the famous Passacaglia by Biber - a somber, moving work and a perfect end to this noteworthy set.

The Polish harpsichordist Alina Ratkowska had already been heard in the Goldberg Variations; It is in an otherwise less known repertoire with his album "Le Clavecin moderne", devoted to contemporary Polish works for the harpsichord. An instrument from the first quarter of the 20th century to the present day, composers had rediscovered with delight - Falla, Martinů, Britten, Poulenc, Glass, Nyman, Carter, Dutilleux, Ligeti and so many others. Some had in mind the heavy Pleyel harpsichord promoted by Wanda Landowska, but if one plays the Berg Concerto on ancient Stradivarius, why not also play contemporary music on old harpsichords, provided they are granted According to the temperament of today? It was Ratkowska's choice of works by Miłosz Bembinow, Bartosz Kowalski, Edward Sielicki, Paweł Łukaszewski, Anna Ignatowicz-Glińska, Marian Sawa and Jacek Grudzień. The influence or inheritance of a Martinů, a minimalist, a Bartók, a Ligeti or a Lutoslawski. Between the old sonority of the harpsichord and the harmonies and the modern rhythms of these musicians, the alchemy is smooth.
