Synopsis

Amazon.com
This excellent disc contains all of Stravinsky's significant music for solo piano, and some that isn't so significant. Aleck Karis has the technique to get through the Three Movements from Petrouchka with panache, the musical restraint to play the simple student pieces of The Five Fingers without exaggeration. And maybe it takes an American to play the two ragtime-based pieces so convincingly. This is a very useful, excellent collection, highly recommended to anyone who wants to experience the entire range of Stravinsky's piano music. Good sound, informative program notes. -- Leslie Gerber
