I agree completely, maybe I've just written too much because I see so many comments on some others with so superficial readings and the reason seems clear to me. But I agree it is not a good thing to mention.

Sorry I didn't get back earlier. I was hoping to find a more precise date on Saenz' CD, but it only mentions 1994 indeed...

I decided to write direct to Ricardo Iznaola, and am very happy to say I got a reply, as follows:

".. my recording of the José was done during the month of December, 1989, and first released in the CD The Dream of Icarus (cat. # IGW 22874) early in 1990. We coupled this CD with another, Virtuoso Romantic Music (IGW 22875), also recorded Dec 89, and re-released them both in the 2-CD album The Icarus Collection (IGW22874-75)".

Short of any of the other early recordings having waited a very long time before release, one suspects this should settle the matter of first recording.

Good to know, Stephen, thanks! (Not that it matters -- other than for the record, as it were. :wink: )

I wasn't aware of this sonata... just listened to the bream and holy hell is it ever a great piece. Interesting to read about your involvement Stephen; I will probably be picking up a copy of that edition at some point.
