Format: Audio CD
Rossini's piano work was totally unknown to me and I purchased this SACD out of curiosity. I was taken aback by the quality of the writing. I was confronted with a genuine master at work. These pieces, all baring a very Satie-like title, are a fortunate blend of Weber (or Schubert), Chopin and Satie. All of the tracks on this disk contain something work listening twice rather than once. It is deep, witty, entertaining and never, ever pointless. Do not expect huge soul-searching pieces from tortured egotistical "artists" here, but rather the richness of the palette of emotions experienced by a human being as told by a great composer.

I agree with everything the previous reviewer said. These are outstanding performances of music that you won't come across very often, and they are played on a wonderful sounding 1858 Pleyel Grand Piano. The piano is full-sounding and warm, not at all what people commonly expect from early pianos. I collect recordings on early pianos because I love hearing something other than the ubiquitous modern Steinway D, and because these pianos are closer to what the composer heard. Giacometti recorded a number of volumes of Rossini's piano music on antique Erards and Pleyels, and I've really enjoyed every one that I have heard.
