Mozart: Piano Sonatas (Complete) (Bilson)
Satie, E.: Piano Music for 4 Hands (Complete) (S. and J. van Veen)
Falla, M.: Nights in the Gardens of Spain / The 3-Cornered Hat (De Falla's Spain) (Schwarz)
Hungaroton: HCD31009-14
Mozart: Piano Sonatas (Complete) (Bilson)


"Bilson's bright tone, brilliant technique, and poised interpretations revealed beauties and profundities in the works that had hitherto been lost in the mass and weight of the modern concert grand. While modern players continued to record the sonatas, it was Bilson's heroic efforts that made the works safe once again for fortepianists." - Allmusic.com
Brilliant Classics: BC9129
Satie, E.: Piano Music for 4 Hands (Complete) (S. and J. van Veen)


On Satie's music, Jean Cocteau said (it) "is small the way a keyhole is small — everything changes the minute you look or listen through it." His popular piano pieces contained idiosyncratic performance marks (e.g. 'Sans orgueil' (without pride)) intended to convey a mood, rather than specific tempi or dynamics.
Delos: DE3060
Falla, M.: Nights in the Gardens of Spain / The 3-Cornered Hat (De Falla's Spain) (Schwarz)


Gerard Schwarz leads the London Symphony Orchestra and pianist Carole Rosenberger through de Falla's Spain, including his Nights in the Garden of Spain and The Three Cornered Hat.
