Moritz Moszkowski (1854-1925) wrote a considerable quantity of piano music, but it is generally remembered today only for a single piece, '√Čtincelles', which Horowitz enjoyed playing. The early works on this first instalment in Ian Hobson's survey of Moszkowski's complete music for solo piano reveal a debt to Mendelssohn and Schumann, but the craftsmanship already justifies a later remark of Paderewski's: 'After Chopin, Moszkowski best understands how to write for the piano, and his writing embraces the whole gamut of piano technique'.
