Bach, Busoni, & Beethoven
The inimitable young British pianist James Rhodes returns with his second recital album. Since the release of his first album last year, Razor Blades, Little Pills and Big Pianos, James’ career has moved from strength to strength. Sales of his debut album rocketed him to the top of the UK iTunes classical chart after Stephen Fry championed him on Twitter, and he has since built a strong following of fans in concert halls and online.
He has filmed a new series for BBC4 on Chopin, which is due for broadcast in March 2010. This disc features a bonus disc of 2 Chopin pieces and video footage of a live performance from the Roundhouse in Camden, London.
“The playing is edgy, raw and uneven – a true reflection of Rhodes's troubled life – but also fresh, vital and undeniably exciting.” The Observer, 4th April 2010
“Glenn Gould [is]...patron saint of this idiosyncratic, honest, sometimes startling performance....an intelligently articulated selection of greats...On the second disc, Rhodes talks about his repertoire persuasively. For the classically-cautious, this is a good place to start.” The Independent on Sunday, 18th April 2010
“...an innovative musician of real talent...the Bach Partita [is] outstanding in every way - lightly pedalled, lucidly voiced, with a lithe, rhythmic buoyancy and deeply expressive Sarabande...Rhodes is as adept at suggesting improvisation...as he is at articulating the fugal writing in the variations.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2010
“His pianism has dramatically improved, most notably in Bach, whose Partita he delivers here with exuberant grace...the control and transparency of his playing at speed is impressive, and he finds grave beauty in the Sarabande.” BBC Music Magazine, July 2010 ***

The Welte Mignon Mystery Volume 11
In 1986 Vladimir Horowitz was asked if his 1926 recordings made for the Welte-Mignon piano could be released. Having no faith in the technique he refused but some personal friends persuaded the great man to listen to the remarkable sound quality of the recordings and when he had done so, he immediately gave his consent. This release is of Horowitz playing those 1926 recordings.

Busoni: Transcriptions for Piano after JS Bach Volume 1
“Busoni always painted Bach with a well-loaded brush, so Baglini's sometimes indulgent gloss can reach overload. But whether luxuriously deep, glintingly magisterial or ethereally delicate, Baglini's sonorities compensate for any sins of addition.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2007 ***
