Lubimov presents vividly-characterised, spacious readings on two different period instruments that ‘seduced [him] and breathed fresh life into the music’. Essential listening for anyone wanting to hear these works in a new light, for the first book he chooses a 1925 Bechstein and for the second a wonderfully sonorous 1913 Steinway found lurking in Poland’s Belgian embassy. Half archaeology, half artistry; all pleasure!
