'Jacobs treats the music with affection, but also respect; he's served by an excellent recording' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)

'Well worth the attention of those who enjoy piano music that seeks merely to soothe, charm and enchant' (Gramophone)

'In this well recorded, presented and imaginatively conceived issue we see again just how well Hyperion can produce the goods! It is a particular pleasure to see this issue on the market' (CDReview)

Étude mélodique in G flat major, Op 118

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Étude mélodique in G flat, Op 118, is charmingly songful in rather Schumannesque vein, much of the interest generated by a rippling inner voice in triplets – but its scope enlarges as it proceeds and rises to an unexpectedly powerful climactic episode in F sharp minor.
