Editorial Reviews

With his idiomatic and graceful style, pianist Philip Martin has established himself as the foremost exponent of Gottschalk. This music requires an impeccable technique matched with élan and joie de vivre for its most effective execution. The composer s music was hugely popular during his lifetime and his works display a real melodic charm and a great sense of fun. Each of the eight discs in Martin s extensive Gottschalk series has received wide acclaim and left pianophiles eagerly awaiting the next issue. The complete set is now available elegantly packaged for a special price.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an AMAZING find!! March 19, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Do you enjoy piano? Well here is a composer, once quite famous, now mostly forgotten, who needs to be rediscovered by the public. And thanks to Hyperion and pianist Philip Martin you can do this with a box set that will be played over and over because of the 8 CD's here, there is not a single one I could rate as less than excellent. The Composer, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, 1829-1869, was an American. Here is a New Orleans native who wrote hundreds of pieces, performing them himself in concerts mostly outside the US, and in writing, anticipated the works of Albeniz, Granados & Milhaud among others. He also anticipated ragtime by half a century! A complete booklet, a fascinating read,a fascinating life, accompanies the CD's but the music is the thing. 109 tracks of just gorgeous and entertaining music.This is really a treasure for anyone's collection. Don't even think about buying this one. Just get it. You will not regret.

Gottschalk was writing rags 50 years before Scott Joplin, and incorporating "blue notes" before the word "Jazz" was even invented. Though some of the music comes across as 2nd rate Chopin, Gottschalk's most original work is brilliant. An approximate contemporary of Stephen Foster, Gottschalk combined a solid classical training and brilliant pianism with the vernacular of his home country, the United States. Philip Martin's interpretations are brilliant, revealing and virtuoistic. A "must have" CD set for anyone interested in American Music

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album September 5, 2013

Biggest problem - which of the 8 cd's to play first. Gottschalk is a spectacular composer who, unfortunately, is badly neglected. His music is melodic, difficult to play but easy to listen to.
