About

Carlo Grante has been recording the complete solo piano works of Godowsky for Music & Arts, of which this CD is the fifth volume.
Of the fourth, containing the Chopin-Godowsky Etudes, Julian Haylock wrote in Classic FM Magazine "Anyone who has heard (or attempted to play) Chopin's original études can hardly have failed to be blown away by their sheer technical effrontery and audacity. Imagine then what happens when someone creates a fresh series of études from the same material-but increases the difficulty by a factor of three…Carlo Grante thrillingly captures the music's sense of danger."

A lovely disc but it really does sound as though Grante has more than two hands!
