Mozart in Paris 1778 - Anton Steck, Marieke Spaans        (6 of 6 found this review helpful)
  May 22, 2007

This set is one of the most interesting contributions to the "Mozart year". It presents the "6 sonates pour forté piano avec accompagnement d'un violon" K 301-306 pubished as opus 1, with Marieke Spaans on an anonymous tangent piano from 1789 and Anton Steck on a Jacobus Stainer violin from 1658. ... more

A solo suite of a Bach son, followed by an early 2oth century piece with strings and a Bach père concert for two harpsichords - a mixed bag, but the content is more than tasty. The program ... more

  March 7, 2007

This sounds like a soundtrack to a movie - it is ironic that the acutal Black Dahlia movie about the life of Elizabeth Short, has music by Mark Isham. Bob Belden's music is inspired by the life of the tragic woman murdered at the age of barely 23 years. It could be called a jazz opera without words. ... more
