Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
This well-known set has been in and out of the catalogue a number of times, always to considerable acclaim. And the performances are every bit as good as everybody has always said. Although individual readings of isolated Rhapsodies may surpass Szidon's, taken as a whole this is certainly the most pleasurable set available. Szidon's technique is especially geared towards clarity of passagework and rhythmic precision and he also possesses a convincingly dreamy temperament that enables the slow passages to emerge with a rare distinction. His technical mastery is in no doubt and this is playing of great flair, with a natural feeling for rubato. The Rapsodieespagnole is a welcome bonus. The sound is sympathetic and vivid.
