5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent taster for the works of Gottschalk 16 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
A first-class selection of works by this composer, superbly performed by the Philippines pianist Cecile Licad, whose interpretation to my mind surpasses that of Philip Martin in his first recording for Hyperion of some of these works - good as that was.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to Gottschalk 5 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
Gottschalk was the father of American pianism, and this is a great, bargain-priced introduction to his music. Crisply and stylisihly played, and nicely recorded. Another Naxos success!

2.0 out of 5 stars Dedicated and Sympathetic Soloist 30 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
A fine performance from Licad, who is a sympathetic soloist with the Gottschalk story, which the notes document. Personally, Bamboula; Danse de negres is the highlight, and, of course, The Union. All other works are polished and played with a deep touch by the young artist.

I have, however, given this release two stars, as I was disappointed that there is not much new here, as Naxos American Classics had already released "A Night in the Tropics", with the Hot Springs Music Festival (1999), under Richard Rosenberg, in 2000, which featured most of the works included in this 2003 edition (only in an orchestrated format). I would have preferred to hear some other, less familiar works. In the future, I may invest in Philip Martin's prodigious, and unprecedented, complete cycle of Gottschalk's piano music with Hyperion (1990-2004).

However, this disc is worth while because of an excellent recording and a generally fine performance, some blemishes not withstanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gottschalk-Piano Works. 21 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
Gottschalk is a very underated composer, and in some respects his style is similar to Rifkin who we all know from The Entertainer. (Theme music from The Sting) It varies from slow and serious to light and lively, the variation on the Star Spangled Banner etc being very clever. For some different piano music that can become very haunting this is a must.
