Gottschalk: Piano Music, Vol. 6
The Archive service is for CDs which have been deleted and where the musical content is not otherwise available.

(If a CD is scheduled for re-issue within the next 3-4 months, the message 'To be reissued on …' will replace the 'Buy Archive CD' button.)

This service offers a production-quality CDR with printed label, inlay (tray) card and, at the minimum, a 2pp booklet (including cover artwork and complete track listing), packaged in a normal jewel case.

In many instances we will provide complete printed booklets, but please note that this is not always the case. Pricing is £13.99 per CD, regardless of the original sale price of the disc(s).

This is the sixth disc in our ongoing Gottschalk series and the success of the project means that what we originally expected to be a few highlights discs seems likely to become the first complete recording of the composer's output for solo piano. We are now well on our way to completing the project.

Many of Gottschalk's usual hallmarks are here though most of the pieces on this disc are based on European traditions rather than showing the Latin-American influence which was also a characteristic of the composer's work. All are played by Philip Martin in his usual idiomatic style, who, by critical consent, has become the foremost exponent of Gottschalk playing today.
