Description: The weighty and virtuosic suite has its sixth CD appearance, coupled with the last of Raff's solo piano compositions, dating from late 1881, where easy and generous melody takes a back seat here to a craftsman of sometimes rather dense polyphony in all four movements although the slow movement produces melody recognizably Raffian. Adrian Ruiz (piano).
