Description: Any new Alkan disc gets our attention even when it contains two war-horses (well, war-horses as far as Alkan is concerned), but aside from the Sonate and the Symphonie, much of the rest of these brilliant, charming and slightly odd shorter pieces are relatively rarely heard or recorded. 2 CDs. Alan Weiss (piano).
