Notes and Editorial Reviews

The four works in this second of three volumes devoted to Enescu's piano music range over a period of more than 30 years. The earliest is the joyful, ebullient Suite "Des cloches sonores", Op. 10 which covers a wide expressive range including use of the melancholy Romanian song, the doina. The Piano Sonata No. 3, Op. 24 is a mercurial, puckish works, both spiritred and contemplative, and the Piece sure le nom de Faure is a charming souvenir from one composer to another.

-----

REVIEW:

The sound is good, if slightly recessed. De Solaun is a wonderful pianist, especially in the colorful worlds of the Second Piano Suite.
