3/12 Symphony 8 (Järvi) / Piano Sonatas Op. 109, 110 (Gould, Gampel)

Maestro Paavo Järvi
Posting a kind of mixed program today.
First, let's step inside the smaller parlor for Alan Gampel's fine performance of Piano Sonata #31 In Ab, Op.110 (1822):
Alan Gampel from the USA begins his semi-final recital in the 1991 GPA Dublin International Piano Competition, the second in the series. He qualified to play in the final round, and won 6th prize. Eighteen competitors progressed far enough in the competition for their choice to be heard. Alan Gampel was also a semi-finalist in the first competition of the series in 1988. He gives a short interview at the end of this sonata. (17:30,w interview 22 min)

Symphony No.8 in F major, Op.93 (1812)
