Another disc to remind us what a loss the world of music suffered in John Ogden. The Hammerklavier is wonderful, as good as any I've heard. It bursts with energy and virtuosity. The third movement is beautiful, great power alternating with great control and musicianship. The somewhat deranged fugal last movement hangs together and makes sense, not always the case. The Nielsen pieces are musically slighter, but enjoyable nonetheless. I'm glad I bought this - it seems to get even better every time I play it. It could well be my desert island Hammerklavier.
