Notes & Reviews:

"He's [Pauk] cold steel, threatening the listener with a craggy first movement studded with protruding rocks and jagged geometric shapes. His white-hot intensity burns its way through the Fuga, cooling only for the ominous Melodia and menacing Presto. There are few performances of the sonata that hold the listener's attention so firmly through sheer intimidation. Pauk shows himself to be both masterly and masterful." -Fanfare
