The single star is for chutzpah. Judging from the way he plays, Skowronski is no shrinking violet; but his tonal control is precarious, his intonation diabolical. The climactic downward plunge of Chanson de matin ends on a pitch unknown to any catalogued Western scale. Reasonable recorded sound, if that matters. Stephen Johnson
