Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ernst Levy was a remarkable musician and yet, few were familiar with Levy prior to our two previous releases. On this two-CD set, Marston presents the fiery pianist in "live" performances. These recordings are from performances in the Boston area during the 1950s and are in excellent sound. Levy brings his unique interpretive skills to bear on Beethoven sonatas including the ?Waldstein,? Op. 10, No. 3 and Op. 28, as well as Schumann?s Symphonic Etudes and Brahms?s Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Handel. Greg Sandow of the Wall Street Journal refers to Levy as the ?triumphantly rediscovered pianist.?
