Notes and Editorial Reviews


An anniversary accolade with a twist: 150 years after his birth, this is a wonderful recital of some of the many works dedicated to Leopold Godowsky. It's difficult to imagine more persuasive performances than these by Andrey Gugnin, who makes a second appearance on Hyperion after his universally - and vociferously - acclaimed Shostakovich.

REVIEW:

Prepare yourself for a deliciously scintillating potpourri of choice delicacies, full of character and charm. Among many factors that make Gugnin’s performances so admirable is that he’s able to imbue each piece with its own distinctively recognisable character. But even more importantly,
Read more Gugnin approaches these works on their own terms so that, far from seeming dated or brittle, they emerge fresh and full of vitality and charm.
