Notes and Editorial Reviews

SOUVENIRS is a delectable collection of miniatures that cover a wide range of musical styles from the Baroque to the 20th century. The CD opens with the Sonata in E Major by Domenico Scarlatti--a favorite among many pianists, most notably Dinu Lipatti--played with felicitous dexterity by Roger Rundle. Mozart's fetching Rondo in D major is given an exuberant reading. Next on this recital is an appropriately grave reading of the Adagio cantabile from Beethoven's 'Pathétique' sonata which is then followed by a vibrant rendition of Schumann's "Aufschwung." Other standouts include a performance of Rachmaninov's Prelude in C-sharp minor which brings Vladimir Horowitz to mind. Debussy's 'Clair de Lune' reveals Rundle's sensitive skills as a master Read more of the French idiom, while another Iberian work, "Danse du Meunier" by Falla, is given a rousing performance. Perhaps the highlights of the disc are the final two selections: a Barcarolle from the relatively obscure R. Nathaniel Dett whose métier was the use of Negro themes within a neoromantic context, and Rundle's swaggering and whimsical version of Gershwin's 'Rhapsody in Blue.' Read less
