Description: We offered a recording of the Moscheles sonata on a period piano back in 2001 (01C030); this lusciously sad im memoriam piece from 1836 for the singer Malibran certainly had its charms on that Broadwood but those who prefer a modern Steinway may want this version (and the three extra pieces which add 12 more minutes to your Moscheles collection). Bertrand Giraud (piano).
