Description: Three hours and 40 minutes of music for $16.98? Wow. Foote's piano music ranges from high quality salon-style pieces to suites of character pieces and stylized dances whose comparanda run the gamut from Chopin to Brahms to pedagogical pieces like the Op. 27 Studies which, like Chopin's Etudes, marry technical exercises to attractive melodies. A bountiful harvest for Romantic piano collectors. 3 CDs for the price of 1. Kirsten Johnson (piano).
