Notes & Reviews:

World-renowned Czech piano master Radoslav Kvapil is most in his element when playing the works of his fellow countrymen, and has been hailed for his service in advancing the cause of Czech composers and particularly their works on piano. He has toured the world in this effort, and his truly inspired performances capture the true feel of the best of Czech composition. His recitals, lectures, and master classes have been in great demand globally for decades.

Gramophone
Kvapil plays with great understanding. He cherishes these curious, reflective tonal sideslips, but also charges vigorously into the more energetic variations. His ability to characterize swiftly and surely is very necessary, as it is in a different manner in the Poetic Tone Pictures... He is deft and sensitive with them, and the recording is no less sensitive to the varying textural demands of such pieces.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Studio Domovina, Prague, Czech Republic (09/1992).
