With his idiomatic and graceful style, pianist Philip Martin has established himself as the foremost exponent of Gottschalk. Much of his music is by no means easy to play; it requires an impeccable technique matched with élan and joie de vivre for its most effective execution.

Although not essentially a ‘great composer’, Louis Moreau Gottschalk had a unique spontaneity and individuality which Martin’s performances bring vividly to the fore. The composer’s music was hugely popular during his lifetime and his works display a real melodic charm and a great sense of fun.

Each of the eight discs in Martin’s extensive Gottschalk series has received wide acclaim and left pianophiles eagerly awaiting the next issue. The complete set is now available elegantly packaged for a special price.

Tournament Galop, R0264


“It isn't only the playing here which gives such satisfaction, but the whole package is stylishly produced – Rousseau on the booklet cover and fine notes from Jeremy Nicholas. The piano sound from the fastidious Hyperion team is flawless. Martin, operating in a context where some pianists can hardly play softly at all, has a ravishing pianissimo. This makes O ma charmante and the perennial – but highly original – The lasthope simply enchanting. Gottschalk is a real melodist. Martin understands the intimacies of the salon but he also lacks nothing in his transcendental virtuosity.
The more flamboyant numbers, such as Tournament Galop prove this.
About 10 years after Gottschalk's death, his pianist colleague, Artur Napoleão, made a piano arrangement of the first movement of Symphony No 1 (Night in the tropics) which Martin includes here. It's slightly drab compared with the orchestral version and soon feels repetitive.
But don't let that put you off this outstanding continuation of Martin's Gottschalk series.”

“CD that hasn't been recorded by Philip Martin, the ideal exponent, but here's another whole collection of surprises – again a real enchantment from start to finish. It's interesting to hear Gottschalk's Op 1, the Polka de salon, published in Paris, which he wrote in his mid-teens. No particular character yet but genuine charm. More typical of the pianist-composer as pop star is Elcocoyé, which gives a local carnival tune a flashy setting and brought the house down for Gottschalk's first recital in Havana in 1854. Solitude is a pretty nocturne inspired by Lamartine, Chopinesque but simpler. The middle section is a fine example of Martin's totally natural, relaxed melodic playing which perfectly fits the serenity of Gottschalk's lyricism. Martin knows how to pace Gottschalk's Caribbean syncopations, too, and is up to all the pyrotechnics.” Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010
