I have had great luck with Naxos recordings. I have been able to get a lot of outstanding music at a bargain price over the years. This CD is one of the few disappointments I've encountered. My primary complaint is the heavy-handed execution of the pieces. It seems that the artist is "punching" the notes out, and this approach becomes tiresome after a while. In comparison, similar material played by Philip Martin on the Hyperion label seems to float out, and at his hands the music becomes seductive. While Martin's recording costs substantially more, it is definitely worth the extra price.
