 Cramer is a Neglected Piano Genius January 4, 2017 By Peter K. (Fort Collins, CO) See All My Reviews "A stunning introduction to a neglected genius! I have not warmed to either Ries or Hummel in the way I have to this album and John Khouri's 2-CD set of late sonatas. Cramer is Mozartian, melodic, charming, but also with an expressive and dramatic range that shows what Mozart might have written like had he lived into the 19th century. Matteo Napoli plays superbly, on a modern grand rather than a fortepiano, and Cramer comes across very well indeed. If you love piano music, you owe it to yourself to get this CD." Report Abuse
