The most impressive Volodos CD IMHO.  The range of colors in his piano palette seems boundless in Mompou materpiece Musica Callada.  There is apparently an historical recording of this piece played by the composer.  A comparison would be most interesting.

Glad to hear that, it's on the way to me, together with one more by Volodos - will be my first exposure to his playing.

Fine composer. Someone kindly gave me a CD of music from Tsar Boris.

Winsemius's [...] someone relaxed and happy to be making music. [...]

Exactly my impression, too.
Heard him live once, in August 2014: one hour+ of musical joy, which lasted in my head for at least a week. :)

On Friday, December 14, 2017, I listened to the following--

Beethoven: Piano Concerto 5 in E Flat Major, Op. 73 "Emperor" (43'01)  |Fantasia in C Minor for piano, chorus, and orchestra, Op. 80--Daniel Barenboim, piano, Otto Klemperer, cond., New Philharmonia Orch. + John Alldis Choir in Op. 80.  CD 3 of a 3 CD set of the Beethoven Piano Concerti.  EMI.

The symphony is one of the best recordings in this set.
