5.0 out of 5 stars A scintillating jazz-inspired recital 24 Dec 2009
By Scriabinmahler TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is a schintillating recital inspired by all sorts of jazz-styles. Hamelin's playing is belief-defying in dexterity and marvellous in the acute sense of rhythm. The highlight of the disc is Nikolai Kapustin's Sonata No. 2, a brilliantly original work. It's a hugely enjoyable CD if you love classical and jazz music both.

'Ive just been listening to this and I must admit
as an amateur pianist of many years I had not heard
the composers on the disk. I had heard of Gulda but didn't know
that he had composed - play piano play - original and refreshing.
Kasputin is utterly brilliant and I will have to try his other works.
Apparently there are a lot!
The jazz is neo-modern in some respects but lyrical, rhythmical and
sensuous. I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting mix 17 Aug 2014

A most enjoyable recording; I hope the pianist records more of Friedrich Gulda's compositions in the future as they appear to be in short supply!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Music, Amazing Performance 12 Dec 2008
By Dr. Debra Jan Bibel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Shades of Art Tatum! Marc-André Hamelin must have incredible virtuosic hands and a quick brain to have performed such demanding works. Modern classical composers have been influenced by jagged jazz tempos and structures...we quickly think of Gershwin, Stravinsky, Ravel, Milhaud, and Bernstein, and jazz musicians have an unusually high regard for classical music. Composer Friedrich Gulda is featured here, and like Andre Previn, has feet in both realms. His exercises or etudes helped him to get away from the rigidity of classical forms. Nikolai Kaspustin's Sonata No. 2, of 1989 vintage is a marvel from Russia. The liner notes provides a long statement by Alexis Weissenberg about the development of his highly complex Sonate en état de jazz. The concluding brief piece by George Antheil is full of wit, nonsense, and joy. As Weissenberg observes, a state of jazz is not a normal state but a drunkenness of the soul operating within a cubist logic. If you love both jazz and classical music, you will especially dig this album. If jazz is terra incognita, buy it anyway and enjoy the splendor!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mark Andre-Hamelin delivers 24 April 2009
By Cop3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent choice for those who enjoy piano and jazz. The cuts do not bore and haven't so far gotten old to my ear - I've listened to this CD almost constantly since I received it and I hear something different each time. I had been to a recital by Hamelin at which he played Sonata in a State of Jazz and was intrigued by both his ability and the work. The quality of this recording is superb and he is a master at this genre. For jazz lovers, or even those who crave something a little different, I recommend this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars In A State of Jazz 23 Jun 2008
By Gawaine Dart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First heard on Canadian radio, I was lucky to find it at AMazon. (where else?) As a long time listener to what is erroniously called "classical" music, I have found the clarity of expression in this CD amazing. Mr. Hamelin's renditions are a marvel of dexterity, and the Kapustin Sonata No 2 is so full of ear worms that I don't know whether to be angry or hopelessly in love. On a scale of five stars, 17!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hamelin: Jazz 9 Jun 2008
By George M. Tenegal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Marc-Andre Hamelin's jazz CD is fabulous! I was totally unfamiliar with the works on this CD and, as usual, Hamelin never ceases to amaze me both in his facility, but also his superb interpretations! I can't even imagine these works played better.
