Description: Three virtuosic pieces - the two Allegros and the Thème varié - are coupled with a charming neo-baroque suite and the late (1920) set of fugues, testimony to a life-long attraction to the form but presented as a series of complex character studies, without a hint of academic leaning. Not much competition for anything here and most of what does exist is on a nearly 40-year-old Vox Box set. Geoffrey Burleson (piano).
