Review by Jonty June 8, 2006 (6 of 6 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
An absolutely stunning disc.

The snippet on the Gramophone cover CD caught my ear and I ordered it from Avie directly. Groh playing of the sonata has all the fantasy, impetuosity and terror that Paul Lewis in his recent rather intellectual CD from Harmonia Mundi lacked good as he is. The fillers are as just as fine as the sonata. I didn't know the Totentanz transcription before but Groh playing means one doesn't miss the orchestra at all. To cap it all the recording, in stereo,is the best recording of a piano I have ever heard. Wonderful range and just the right amount of distance so that the acoustic supports but doesn't cloud the sound. I note that the engineer ,Peter Langer, is from Tritonus who have produced some great sounding recordings in the past.
