  • October 06, 2011 Wonderful collection!

    Godowsky's tutelage seemed to have gone unnoticed in the decades following his death. Now, however, his pieces are becoming more available with these Godowsky collections. Godowsky is a fine composer with a truly unique textural sense of composition. Although he may not deserve to be a legendary composer like...

    Bach, or Brahms, some of his pieces should become standard repertoire (the studies on Chopin's Etudes, the Passacaglia, and many of the transcriptions. This volume contains the long-winded sonata, the thrilling Passacaglia, and the inventive Java Suite along with two sets of waltzes that each contain some delightful musical ideas. This book is massive, over 400 pages, which makes it cumbersome. But in general, it stays open by itself for the middle pages. This book also contains long biographical essays and lots of photographs of the composer. It's a great buy!
