ALBUM TITLE: Godowsky
WORKS: Piano Music
PERFORMER: Rian de Waal (piano)
CATALOGUE NO: CDH 55206
This disc is amazing, even hilarious, but should probably be taken in two or three separate doses. Godowsky’s inventiveness reaches its apogee in the vast Passacaglia on the opening of Schubert’s Unfinished, but it’s all wild stuff, to which Rian de Waal does ample justice.
