Notes & Reviews:

Wanda Landowska achieved such fame for her revival of the harpsichord that it is sometimes forgotten that she was also a fine pianist. This set brings together, for the first time, all her recordings on that instrument. In their understanding of period style, and above all in their ability to get to the emotional heart of the matter, these recordings reveal Landowska’s playing to be as valid now, in our historically informed time, as it ever was.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
The musical effect is analogous to what Shakespeare does with dramatic characters or Michelangelo with the human figure. Landowska's performances are mannered, to be sure, but the results are pleasing and astonishing in the best sort of baroque way. Her Haydn is consistently, breathlessly sublime. That she could pull this off in her late 70s is a testimony to how much her virtuosity owed to intelligence and imagination and how little to mechanical skills.
