Selected works by Glazunov

EAN/barcode: 4009850020301

This is the nineteenth Welte CD from TACET. About 19 further projects have already been recorded, which means that the series will soon comprise 30 publications. What's it all about? The Welte firm in Freiburg filed a patent application in 1904 for a procedure that recorded the refinements of piano-playing on paper rolls. Until now, these historical documents from the period around 1905 to 1930 were only available at a reduced level of quality. Insufficient playback settings of the piano rolls, especially as regards tempo but also concerning volume proportions and attack, often made it difficult to gain an accurate perception of the interpretation of the given period. This situation has greatly improved thanks to many years of research on the part of the restorer and collector Hans W. Schmitz. This recording of pieces by Alexander Glazunov from the year 1910, most of them played by the composer, impressively demonstrates this once again.
