Description: The second volume completes two opus numbers begun with Vol. 1 last June (06K007): the Rhapsodie-Etudes range from mid-19th century virtuosity of the Moscheles or Henselt type to a more contemporary style while the Nocturnes are late works using themes and motifs from 40-year-old orchestral pieces. The Celtic Suite is a piano version of an original for string quartet and uses one Manx, two Welsh and three Scottish folk tunes in its four movements Panagiotis Trochopoulos (piano).
