 Magnificent Virtuosity, but Needs Better Recording October 4, 2017 By Patrick V. Casali (Prospect Heights , IL) See All My Reviews "LECUONA: COMPLETE PIANO MUSIC VOL. 3: Thomas Tirano is a wonderful pianist and a Lecuona expert. His virtuosity is stunning and thoroughly authentic in the way he plays these engaging works by Cuba's foremost composer. One could easily say that Ernesto Lecuona is Cuba's George Gershwin. He easily bridges the gaps between serious and popular music, all with delicious Latino and Afro-Cubano panache. But, how I wish BIS had done a much better job of recording this beautiful music. There is not much bass, and I know Tirano was playing on an excellent concert grand--because I have one myself. Also, at times somebody in the control booth is tweaking the volume controls since there are times when the music practically drops down to almost inaudible making you turn up the volume, and then flairs up again, making you turn down the volume. What? Tell the kids to stop fooling around in the control booth and send in a decent recording engineer to give full due to the great music contained on these discs." Report Abuse
