Louis Glass was a fairly prolific late Romantic Danish composer who died in 1936. RSAMD pianist Peter Seivewright, who believes Glass is at least of the stature of Carl Nielsen, has recorded this double CD of Glass’s music which includes two large-scale sonatas, an epic fantasy and collections of smaller pieces. Of the two sonatas, the A flat major is a piece of great nobility, well structured and highly integrated thematically. It wears its Romanticism coolly. But Glass’s major strength lies in the exquisite, often wistful and charming small lyric pieces. Seivewright’s performing style, which is structuralist, sometimes at the expense of fluidity, is idiosyncratic and a matter of taste.
