From Bach to Bartók - Recordings: 1956-1983
2006 release. With a concentration on pianist Irén Marik's Bach and Bartók, we find her probing deeply into their spirits and expressions. Two major Beethoven piano sonatas, the Moonlight Sonata and his final sonata (No. 32), receive new life and perspective through her unique summoning art. Another trove found in the legacy of home and concert recordings kept in her California desert abode. Also includes performances of compositions by Alexander Siloti, Maurice Ravel, François Couperin, Frédéric Chopin, Alexander Scriabin, Domenico Scarlatti, and Franz Liszt.
