Description: This may look like a huge grab-bag of short piano pieces (and it is) but it's also the biggest release ever of Bache's music: an eight-movement suite nearly 40 minutes long written right after the piano concerto which came out in Hyperion's Romantic Piano Concerto series (10J048). Unlike the Mendelssohnian concerto, Bache seeems to be pursuing an amalgam of late Classical/early Romantic salon styles from Hummel and Field to Steibelt and Wölfl with only the final movement actually attempting anything Italian in style. 2 CDs. Christopher Howell (piano).
