Maria Joao Pires: Complete Solo Recordings / Maria Joao Pires, piano [20 CDs]

Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone
Maria Jopo Pires [is] among the most eloquent master-musicians of our time.

Guardian
Levels of poetic sensitivity [in Schubert] that have been matched by few.

Gramophone
Pires with her burning clarity has reinforced our sense of Chopin's stature.

Neue Znrcher Zeitung
An artist who makes Mozart so completely her own that one no longer senses the act of interpretation.
