Notes & Reviews:

"...The sound, after all, is always one's first impression, and first reactions can be paramount. But whereas one often thinks: well, decent enough (and then adjusts and gets on with listening), this is different. It is so true and such a delight to listen to that I feel resolved for the future to say, why can't all piano records be as good as this?..Perahia is extraordinarily successful in translating these with the daredevil 'edge' they must have..." -SP, Editor's Choice, Gramophone
