Bullets & Lullabies

This one almost killed me. Some stupidly difficult virtuoso pieces with the counterpoint of more mellow lullabies alongside them. This album was more like a DJ setlist than a mixed recital and the temptation is always to record a bunch ‘advert friendly’ short famous pieces. I wanted to make sure I included some rarer little gems I’d found (Moszkowski, Blumenfeld, Grieg/Ginzburg) alongside Clair de Lune and Ravel’s Pavane. This one made me grumpy and stressed (YOU try recording Alkan when you weigh 125lbs and smoke too much), but I”m dead proud of the result.
