Notes & Reviews:

'All these performances are a marvel of the most concentrated pianism, musical thought and emotion ... sound and presentation are fully equal to a very special occasion' (Gramophone)

'All-encompassing mastery ... first rate' (American Record Guide)

'Here, captured all too rarely even in live recordings, is the raptly magical concentration exceptional to the adrenalin of a concert. Utter finesse, exquisite control of tone colour and sharply intelligent empathy. The Vorisek is breathtakingly beautiful' (BBC Music Magazine)
