John Khouri, Six Octave Fortepiano by Jacob Pfister, Würzburg, c.1820. CD total time: 57:14. UPC# 017685-11032-0.

"With this disc, dedicated to the major sonatas by Johann Nepomuk Hummel, a great pianist and composer to the era, contemporanious with Beethoven, Schubert, Weber, Clementi etc, Khouri demonstrates yet again --and I presume he will again confirm himself with Cramer and the Chopin Etudes -- to be an authentic virtuoso of the fortepiano. What more is there to say? Khouri has delighted us [and] he fully convinces us."
