Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, November 2014
Foldes recorded a substantial amount of Bartok's piano music, on four mono LPs, in 1954 and 1955. Beyond this set's historical significance, the playing has a cool mastery.

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
Such masterly playing, now assertive, now gentle and consoling, makes the Sonata seem a work of flaming genius' [... ] 'Foldes plays Bart=k's music with the utmost brilliance and refinement In the Romanian Christmas Carols his sense of rhythm is superlative ... The recording is superlative.
