 Exceptional Neglected 19th Century Chamber Music February 6, 2016 By L. Lieberman (Fort Lee, NJ) See All My Reviews "Each of these pieces is a neglected masterpiece. Public concert performances are rare to unheard of. The printed scores are in print (Billadot), and readily available. It is only the fearsome reputation of the difficulty of Alkan's pianism that inhibits almost but the young from playing these. they contain interesting ideas, passion, strict form and unusual tonality and rhythms. There is also anticipation of modern-isms of composers who were to follow." Report Abuse
