Notes & Reviews:
Jorge bolet was an avowed romantic, happy to relax once the serious business of his recital is over. Like moiseiwitsch, he could be mischievously enterprising, challenging his audience to guess the composer of this or that rare poetic jewel or confection - or, like rubinstein, he could affectionately confirm and recreate their favourites. With delightful old world charm, fleet of finger, yet ever conscious of the singing line, bolet weaves pure magic in this collection of encores. After a long absence from the catalogue, this disc returns, now at budget price.
Ten recordings of classical masterpieces, ranging from Rimsky-Korsakov to Sibelius, performed under the baton of Ernest Ansermet and more, rereleased at an affordable price.
The unfailing wizardry of Bolet. He is also splendidly recorded. It is difficult to see how an encore-fancier could greet this record with anything but the most delighted of, well encores.
