'A very enjoyable disc indeed' (The Good CD Guide)

'The best Gottschalk disk currently available' (Fanfare, USA)

'An important and recommendable issue … to be welcomed wholeheartedly' (CDReview)
A sketch from his Spanish days which again foregoes any great virtuosity (this a plaintive gypsy serenade) and did not find its way into print until 1975.

from notes by Jeremy Nicholas © 1990

Une esquisse de sa période espagnole qui une fois encore renonce à toute grande virtuosité (c’est une sérénade gitane plaintive) et ne fut imprimée qu’en 1975.

extrait des notes rédigées par Jeremy Nicholas © 1990
Français: Alain Midoux

Eine Studie aus der Zeit seines Aufenthalts in Spanien, die ebenfalls auf große Virtuosität verzichtet (immerhin handelt es sich um eine traurige Zigeunerserenade) und erst 1975 in gedruckter Form erschienen ist.
