I was stunned by the dramatic expression displayed in the Bach-Busoni Chaconne in D-minor and Schumann's Kreisleriana. Felcman elegant and deeply felt playing uncovers details that eluded even the greatest pianist of the past. The Rorem and the Guastavino pieces are rarely if ever recorded, and Felcman plays them beautifully. If you are a lover of quality piano music, you shouldn't miss this CD!

This artist has the inspiration, masterful technique and warm engagement with the music of the great pianists of the past. This recording has an unusual and thrilling variety of works beautifully played from Scarlatti, Bach-Busoni, Schumann, Guastavino, and Rorem. This CD is awesome!

This is one of my greatest discoveries. From Scarlatti to Rorem this CD pulses with lyricism, deep & powerful feeling, and exuberance. 78 minutes of pure musical bliss. Marta Felcman is one of the greats--and I mean Argerich, Perahia, and Uchida kind of great. I recommend this CD wholeheartedly.

This compact disc is a little over an hour of bliss. The performer was unknown to me before I received this album as a gift -- and what a gift. This is the kind of album you can just lay back and let it transport you. The program has all the variety and richness of a well conceived recital and leaves the listener refreshed and aesthetically satisfied.

The program begins with two delightful contrapuntal works by Domenico Scarlatti. Miss Felcman plays these works with verve and remarkable clarity. She makes a strong case for those who choose to play baroque music on modern pianos. In context, the performer is bringing the listener into a deeper level of listening which will be fully explored in the Bach/Busoni transcription of the D minor Chaconne (after BWV 1004) which follows. It is in this very architectural work that Marta Felcman won my heart. She most definitely understands this work on the deepest level and knows just how to communicate what she sees and hears in the work through her almost hypnotic use of rhythmic tension and nuance as expressive devices. For this listener, this single performance would make the album worth twice the price.

Three works from her Argentinean countryman Carlos Guastavino disclose the lyricism, passion and earthy qualities that are so much a part of their native folk melodies.

For those who love the "Kreisleriana" of Schumann, this album is a must. Marta Felcman here presents the entire suite, served up with great good taste, and the right blend of elan, whimsy and devilish panache. This is a mature interpretation that belongs in place next to the recorded performances of Horowitz, Rubenstein, Ashkenazy, Pariah and company.

Concluding the album is the performance of Ned Rorem's Piano Sonata No.
