"This CD presents a Cuban pianist playing Cuban music. One would assume deep understanding of styles, and conception. However, such is not the case 100% unfortunately with all the music here. Spengler plays beautiful Saumell, nice Cervantes (though not as good as some other Cuban pianists). The Lecuona however I must say, is some of the WORST playing committed to disk of these pieces. I am embarrased as a Cuban, that one of our own should not understand Lecuona's music, style, and forms better.Still the Saumell is really wonderful. Buy the disk for this music. However, Listen to Nohema Fernandez or Frank Fernandez Play Cervantes in their recordings for peerless interpretations of these works, who are also Cuban pianists.For Lecuona, once again-there is no competition in my opinion-get Tirino's complete series on the BIS label (who started the revival of Lecuona's music these days) and also get Lecuona's own recordings as a point of reference."
