Clarifying a Minor Detail in Today's Arts News
I was glad to see that the Album Review by Joshua Kosman for today's San Francisco Chronicle covered a new release by the imaginative pianist David Greilsammer. However, the review gave the impression that this was Greilsammner's recording debut, while, strictly speaking, it was only his debut for the Sony Classical label. I see from my records that I reviewed two CDs of Mozart piano concertos, which he recorded for Naïve Classics for his own Suedama (an anagram of “Amadeus”) Ensemble, for Examiner.com. I used these recordings to prepare for Greilsammer's Mozart performances with Labadie conducting the San Francisco Symphony in 2011 (which I also covered for Examiner.com)!
