This new edition of Martin's 8 Préludes benefits from research and editing by Paul Badura-Skoda. He includes a letter from Martin which outlines several points on performance, along with a critical report detailing editorial decisions. Although the autograph is still missing, Badura-Skoda was able to consult a second fair copy provided by Maria Martin and recordings of Martin's own playing. For advanced pianists. Duration: 20'

(…) Deze prachtige uitgave nodigt uit tot een verdere kennismaking met de fijnzinnige muziek van Martin en bovendien met een ten onrechte vergeten meesterwerk uit de pianoliteratuur.
