Time to Refresh

On this episode of Reflections from the Keyboard, David Dubal features a light and refreshing mix of pieces from the vast piano literature.

The mix includes Antonio Soler's Piano Sonata in D beautifully rendered by Alicia de Laroccha, as well as Bach Prelude and Fugue played by the incredible Samuel Feinberg.

Two comparative performances hit the spot. The Diabolical Suggestion by Sergei Prokofiev played quite differently by Benno Moiseiwitsch and Alexis Weisenberg. And Schumann's Kreisleriana Op. 16 No. 1 in a duel between Nathan Brand and Shura Cherkassky.  All bring their talents to the keys on this reinvigorating and entertaining edition.
