  • He’s really something — a nice coup. And he’ll be a good prompt for the creation of more LH rep for piano. It’s a good thing he’s a natural late Romantic stylist; if he had a natural bent for Baroque, he’d be in a bad way, but he’s got a nice, almost aristocratically “casual” style that’s just right for the sort of rep he’d play.
