 Fantastic! March 18, 2015 By Carl W. See All My Reviews "Pianist Jeni Slotchiver may well prove to be this composer's best exponent and intercessor between him and the listener. Her playing is first and foremost at the service of the music, and always leads the narrative to its inevitable conclusion. Some of the titans of the piano like Ogdon, Brendel and Hamelin have already put their stamp on this music, but there is nothing to prevent Jeni Slotchiver from imprinting her own art, technical skill and persona on it. If you've passed on this composer before from fear of getting lost, let this Busoni specialist be your dedicated guide. Jean-Yves Duperron — Classical Music Sentinel" Report Abuse
