5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and Creative Piano Recording August 26, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Lewin's second album for Sono Luminus, like his fabulous first one, "If I Were a Bird", is another creative themed collection mixing famous and lesser-known composers. In this one, the theme is phantoms, ghosts, and goblins. This is a classy presentation in every way. The playing is as good as it gets, in fantastic recorded sound, with a deluxe booklet including extensive and down-to-earth program notes written by the pianist.
What a tremendous collection of music! I have come to expect great range of color, emotion and virtuosity from Michael Lewin. He outdoes himself here. The virtuoso pieces are spectacular. The difficulties of Tausig's "Ghost Ship" are the stuff of legend; here there is no strain, only an ancient legend of Vikings and the Ghost ship in the stormy sea, brought to panoramic life. The fearsome Lyapunov Etude is amazing. Lewin's super-fast fingers fly in the goblin pieces, with lightness and charm. Bolcom's "Graceful Ghost Rag" swings and lilts, with authentic empathy for this poignant and beloved Rag. Ending with the far too rarely-played Schumann "Ghost Variations" was a brilliant idea- so poetic, inward, filled with such pathos and otherworldliness. Perhaps this work, Schumann's last, is not meant for the concert stage- but it is unquestionably deeply affecting on this recording. There are many pieces and composers that were new to me- Niemann, Carlos Troyer (a rambunctious Native American humdinger!), Farjeon, Vallier, and others. All of these 18 works are evocative and excellent, even if a few are light-weight. I loved the emotionally complicated "Wood Goblin" by the great Russian, Nikolai Medtner. Dvorak's "Golbin's Dance" is played in perfect style, as is Grieg's Goblin's Wedding procession.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique Piano Recital April 1, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An extremely clever program of piano conmpositions dealing with Ghosts, Gobblins, and Phantoms. Excellent performances by concert pianist, Michael Lewin. Some of the composers include Robert Schumann "Ghost Variations," J. Reve-King, Grieg, Schubert (!), Tausig, E. Goossens, Price, and others. Lewin certainly understands the romantic approach. The playing is subtle, sensitive and with panache.
Program notes are informative and add much to this cd recital. This cd recital is highly recommended for those individuals who want to hear and understand more about the lesser known programatic compositions. Sono Luminus offers an interesting catalog for those individuals who need to explore more unknown repertoire.
