Notes & Reviews:

"...how much richness of experience you'd be missing if you resist Kissin's manner. And who would want to resist it anyway, when the sense of intellectual, emotional and pianistic identity with the music is so strong...For me, this is modern piano playing at its finest, and it goes straight on to my short-list for a Gramophone award. Recording quality is of the finest too, combining clarity and impact with perspective and bloom." -Gramophone
