The final part of Anthony Goldstone’s brilliant triptych of recitals including transcriptions, variations, fantasias, and arrangements of music from public ’spectacles’ - the first two CDs attracted enormous critical praise and this volume is no less fine, containing perhaps a few more well-known themes, such as those from Swan Lake and The Nutcracker, but in fresh and new arrangements by the performer - indeed most of the music here is receiving its first recording.
“A scintillating recital of colourful miniatures. To hear Goldstone affectionately shaping with effortless virtuosity his own skilful transcriptions [of Tchaikovsky] has one relishing these timeless phrases afresh. Exquisite poise and timing… beguiling finesse and tonal subtlety”
Julian Haylock - International Piano magazine
“ Goldstone proves he can play anything with such absolute mastery, subtlety and style... a great talent on top of his stride. Taking his piano wizardry to familiar themes...each one is such a joy.”
