5.0 out of 5 stars Skolarski Plays Gentle, Lyrical Pieces 13 July 2013
By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The title of this CD is 'Nostalgic Trip' and the booklet doesn't make explicit why it is called that although one notes that the disc is dedicated 'to the memory of my father'. Since Konrad Skolarski's father was a musician, perhaps that is the link to 'nostalgia'. The disc is certainly a trip down memory lane for me -- and I would guess for many experienced musiclovers -- because it contains familiar music (sometimes in unfamiliar versions) that is the aural equivalent of comfort food. And Skolarski serves it up with grace and polish, not to speak of a magnificent technique. Among the most familiar works are several by Chopin, the favorite (No. 2 in A) of the Brahms Op. 18 set and a couple of Rachmaninov works. In unfamiliar garb are Siloti's arrangement of the Bach Organ Prelude in B Minor (BWV 855), Pavel Pabst's arrangement of Tchaikovsky's Lullaby, Op. 16, No. 1, and Leopold Godowsky's wonderful arrangement of Saint-SaŽns' 'The Swan' (from Carnival of the Animals). There was only one piece I wasn't familiar with: Grieg's 'Vanished Days' from his Lyric Pieces which I'm sure I've heard but simply don't recall.

Skolarski's playing is exactly what this collection calls for. I can easily imagine this CD being used for relaxation or background music by those who view classical music as useful for that purpose. But for those of us who listen carefully and critically the disc holds up nicely.

Just recently I had reviewed a disc from the Dux label Homage to Brahms - Ignacy Lisiecki, piano and commented on the awful recorded sound. I note on comparing the booklets of that one and the present disc that they don't share any engineering/production personnel.

There is absolutely nothing in the booklet about the music itself. Rather it confines itself to puffery about the pianist.

Recommended for its intended audience.
