(Kogan) “vibrant soulful and involving …genuinely compelling, authentically tangy accounts of these masterworks, penetrating to the core of their homesick melancholy… impossible to resist” (Gramophone)

( “big string melodies blossoming voluptuously …a most satisfying account…richness, brilliance and weight” (Penguin Guide)

(Richter): The 2nd really fits the description
of ‘legendary recording’”

(Michelangeli): “one of the most brilliant piano records ever made” (both: Penguin Guide)

(Janis): “brilliantly captured the warmly romantic and chimerical interpretation which resulted. Solo playing…scintillating” (Gramophone)
