Produktinfo

Elgar's piano works have been overshadowed by the large-scale works for which he is best known today. This recording combines the ever-popular Engima Variations, heard in the composer's own transcription, with several occasional pieces of a romantic or nostalgic hue. These include the charming Sonatina written for Elgar's niece, two movements from the wistful Dream Children (the orchestral version can be heard on Naxos 8.557166) and Une Idylle, which recalls a holiday in Scotland.
   

Pressestimmen

FonoForum 03 / 07: "Und die Auswahl, die der sehr ambitionierte Ashley Wass präsentiert, zeigt in gewisser Weise, dass dieser Zeitgenosse von Strauss am Klavier recht konservativ waltete. Da grüßt in Stücken wie "May Song" oder "Douce Pensée" die Salonsüße nicht nur aus der Ferne. Da wird in der "Sérénade Mauresque" auf Art des 19. Jahrhunderts maurisches Kolorit beschworen. Vieles, wie etwa die 1887 komponierte und 1930 überarbeitete Sonatine, ist im Klang apart gezeichnet."
