Bentzon is still appallingly neglected. This is wonderfully muscular, angular music, sometimes with a grandeur rare in 20th century piano music, and a sound-world all of its own. Shostakovich, in the preludes and fugues, had Bach very much in mind, if Bentzon was thinking of anyone it must have been Beethoven. Another parallel might be Bartok in Mikrokosmos, at least in as far as they were both uncompromisingly classical, taking no prisoners. You either love that or hate it. I only wish more pianists took an interest in these pieces, as any really good pianist would bring something different to it, and whether you think this music is as good as his more famous contemporaries is down to what performers can find in it. As we only have one interpetation, Blyme's, you couldn't ask for better. I heard the partita once decades ago and never forgot it; the more I listen to the other works on this disc the deeper I'm drawn into Bentzon's mind.
