By Giv Cornfield
The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics
This is a very handsome recording of music by a totally unknown composer. It could have been enjoyable, given the high level of artistry by the performer, and the considerable resources that went into the production. Unfortunately, the quest for authenticity in this case was, in my humble opinion, carried too far by the use of two awful-sounding Erard instruments of 1802 and 1808. The dry, clatter-box sound produced by these historical pianos are extremely unmusical and very disappointing.
