Just as excellent as his first Alkan release 28 Sept. 2013
By Ethan James McCollum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Once again, Vincenzo presents us a masterful CD of music by Alkan. He has plenty of technique to spare in every track, and his wit (paired with Alkan's quirky wit) cannot be beat. However, the "Trois Morceaux" are what I most enjoy. One, because it's the only other available recording besides Marc-Andre Hamelin's recording (which is superb), but also, Maltempo does such a fantastic job bringing out the darker side of Alkan in such a vivid way.

Highly recommend this CD, as well as the Grande Sonate/Symphony CD.

A Talented Pianist Outdone by Others 20 Oct. 2013
By J Scott Morrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I agree with the previous review that Vincenzo Maltempo is a pianist with all the goods necessary for this marvelous, quirky, insanely difficult music. But since the onset of the Alkan renaissance forty-five years ago with recordings by Raymond Lewenthal and Ronald Smith, there have followed incendiary CDs by Marc-André Hamelin and Jack Gibbons which set the bar so high that it is almost humanly impossible to equal or top them. And although Maltempo is a fine pianist, he misses the mark -- pace Ethan James McCollum -- precisely where ardor and understanding are most needed: in the mysteriously appealing Trois Morceaux. His playing in these odd pieces is dull. That said, his performance of Festin d'Ésope and the Sonatine is excellent, if still a little short of Hamelin's. As for the Ouverture (the eleventh of the minor key études), he again makes it dull when compared with Hamelin or Gibbons.
