“Vox reissues offer the rare opportunity not only to reassess the musical and interpretative development of this fine pianist over more than 30 years, but also to benefit from the purely musical insights which such a comparison can give.” — Gramophone



“Moonlight is hushed and gentle in its cool stillness, with veiled tone…. The finale, at a relaxed tempo, is beautifully pointed but does not seek extrovert excitement…. Les Adieux: finale is striking and direct… recordings excellently remastered: bright, bold and resonant with fine presence.” — Penguin Guide
