Definitive performances of Barber's piano musicMay 11 2010
- Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This recording has rather limited distribution--most unfortunate because the Bulgarian-French pianist Lilia Boyadjieva offers us perhaps the finest all-Barber piano CD currently in print. Her performance of the Piano Sonata is one of the few to achieve a fully convincing coherence--true also for the late Ballade. Plus her recital includes several rarely-heard but fascinatingly revealing pieces of juvenilia. Admirers of Barber's piano music will find this recording worth seeking out.
