José López, piano
Celebrated Cuban-American pianist José López plays a program of works by composers with Jewish heritage.
“Alkan’s complete piano transcriptions of Mozart’s music make a sequence both diverting and profound. López, who in the booklet explains Alkan’s treatment of the D minor Piano Concerto, K466, in extraordinary detail, plays captivatingly. One doesn’t miss the orchestra at all.”--Sunday Times (London)
