A Grand Romance
Steinway & Sons 30017
Moszkowski: Caprice espagnol (6:50)
Jeffrey Biegel, piano
‘A Grand Romance’ celebrates the intimacy of the relationship between pianist and public, with a sampling of finely honed pieces of the Romantic era. Penned by composers who were highly accomplished keyboardists themselves, it represents a genre of pianism unashamed of sentiment, frill and facility, and luxuriating in the expressive sophistication of the instrument and the wooing of the crowd.
