CD Reviews

Thoughtful and Gentle
Eclectic Clay | Western USA | 04/09/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mr. Parkin displays a gentleness, restraint, and romanticism that is too often lacking in interpretations of Poulenc. I've always believed there was a bit more Fauré (I'm thinking of his Ballade for solo piano here) than most interpreters allow. Listen to the Novelette No. 1 and the Nocturne No. 1 as examples. Also, the Mouvements Perpetuels are played with a more gentle touch than I've heard recorded. Yet, when the composer shows his humor, the pianist understands. An altogether satisfying, thoughtful, enduring interpretation of music too often overlooked."
