Piano Miniatures (Hoogland) ~ Charles-Valentin Alkan

By ways of introduction to the works of Alkan, these recordings would be, for me, up there with Lewenthal's superb albums - not just because of the pianistic skill of the performer, but also because of the choice of music included. The thing about alkan is that his work isn't consistently Superb. The selection of music on this CD, however, is exciting, original, and moving (not all at the same time, though), and if you're looking for something more easy going than the usualy piano-destroying repertoire pieces that are the standard on most alkan albums, I would recommend this.
