Lincoln Mayorga Piano
This recording, originally a live, unedited, direct-to-disc concert performance, is a dramatically beautiful piano recording, engineered by the late Doug Sax (1936-2015). Sax was known for his minimalist, classical approach to recording, with the emphasis on critical microphone placement in a fine acoustical environment. The repertoire consists of a cornerstone work for piano by the young Johannes Brahms: the Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, Handel's Aria in B flat with Variations, the Mazurka in A minor (Op. 17, No. 4) by Chopin and a new recording of Brahms' Two Rhapsodies (Op. 79).
