Editorial Reviews

This collection of piano music is a welcome reminder of the many fascinating stylistic strands that colour George Enescu' work. Seriously under-rated today, he exerted a powerful influence on all those who came under his spell, including Yehudi Menuhin, f

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb introduction to a lesser-known composer! February 26, 2011
Format:Audio CD
The music of Romanian composer George Enescu does not often find its way onto today's the concert stages. After listening this album, I wonder why that is the case. Enescu's music, in the adept hands of pianist Matei Varga, is, by turns, dark, searching, playful, virtuosic, and melancholy, and deserving of much more attention than it has received since Enescu's death in 1955. Varga navigates the thorny, not-quite tonal landscape of Enescu with the command and ease of a much older pianist. The second movement of the Sonata (Presto) is a rollocking Scherzo that comes alive under Varga's fingers. It is such an impressive reading that I am sure, when performed live, it inspires (or, more accurately, demands) applause even though there's another movement to come. And what a movement it is--the third movement of the Sonata is ravishing. Varga's sensitivity and depth as a performer really shine here. The whole Sonata, as well as the other works on the album (two short impromptus and a baroque-style suite), seem completely natural for this pianist, and it clearly goes beyond the fact that Varga is also Romanian. His utter command over every phrase and nuance make this a wonderful way to get to know the music of a less-familiar composer. I look forward to more from Matei Varga.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music waiting to be discovered! February 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is an amazing album from a really talented artist. This album was my first introduction to the Romanian composer who I had never heard of before and I couldn't believe what I had been missing. I was truly amazed at the beauty of the pieces and am thankful that there are albums like this that open up my ears to new sounds and experiences. Give this album a listen, even if your not a big classical music fan like myself, and you'll be pleasantly surprised at what you'll feel the minute the first note drops.
