CATALOGUE NO: AAOC-94382 (distr. The Music Group 01353 646500)
The principal attractions here are the blithe, pellucid Nouvelles sonatines françaises. Sharon is a more earthbound pianist in the Les heures persanes extracts than Herbert Henck in his hypnotic complete performance (Wergo). The CD transfer has not ameliorated the chunky piano tone.
