Editorial Reviews

Today, Weber is best known for his operas but he was also a pianist. He wrote a sizeable body of piano music, at the center of which is his four sonatas. Perhaps the first truly Romantic piano sonatas, they influenced the next generation of German composers such as Mendelssohn and Schumann. Though these works are large scale and virtuosic, they are rarely recorded. The program also includes the once hugely popular Invitation to the Dance, a work that has become better known in the orchestration by Berlioz. Performed here by Garrick Ohlsson, these acclaimed performances were originally released on Arabesque.

By J. R. Trtek on December 17, 2012
Format: Audio CD
This two-set set is a Hyperion reissue of an album originally released on the Arabesque label: All four piano sonatas by Carl Maria von Weber, plus his Momento capriccioso, Rondo brillante and Invitation to the Dance. Garrick Ohlsson is the pianist, and he accomplishes this traversal in grand style. The Weber keyboard pieces are largely virtuoso showcases, and Ohlsson's fingers are to my untrained ear dexterous enough to cash the checks that the composer has written. In the end, for my tastes, I feel that the pieces provide a lot of show but perhaps not a whole lot of emotional depth, but it's nevertheless fun in the interim. If roller coaster rides on ivory are one of your favorite things, you will definitely enjoy this ride.

Magic time for this complete piano sonatas of Weber. Garrick plays superbly. I do strongly recommend the double cd album.

Wonderful performances of sadly neglected repertoire by one of today's best pianists. The Invitation to the Dance was especially fun and exciting. There are no technical obstacles that Mr. Ohlsson cannot overcome. Very pleased with this purchase. Recommended.
