Janacek: Complete Piano Music

JanacekMartino Tirimo

HTGCD264/5 – 5060332660537

A 2 CD set of the complete piano music of Leos Janacek played by Martino Tirimo.

‘This invaluable two-CD album of Janacek’s complete piano music includes a short and personal essay by Martino Tirimo. There he tells us ‘there is no other musical expression like Janacek’s. When you hear it you recognise it. It is a testimony to his greatness……. ‘Tirimo’s performances could hardly be more scrupulous, sensitive and committed.’
– Gramophone August 2014

‘This recording of Janacek’s piano music from 2003 is highly desirable…….. Martimo Tirimo has the special knack of making everything sound easy…….. Everything is immaculately presented here. These splendid performances are all captured here in immediate sound, including some gentle vocalising from the pianist.’
– MusicWeb International, July 2014
