Notes & Reviews:

In 1962 Stephen Plaistow wrote of the Liszt E flat Polonaise on this set that 'the playing of the E major Polonaise is outstanding: it has bravura, exquisite timing and poise, color, delicacy, plenty of rhythmic character and an air of ebullient pomp that is quite irresistible.' You might expect such ebullience from Vasary in the music of his fellow-countryman Liszt. Such qualities will likely make a fine Debussyan of a pianist, too. What may come as more of a surprise to those unaware of Vasary's eminence over half a century now as pianist, conductor and more importantly musician, is the vigorous authority of his Brahms.
