International Record Review
It's hard to beat this generous budget-price compilation... played with the impeccable artistry that we've come to expect from Pires... The Mozart Sonata and the Schubert are masterfully handled, pristine without ever sounding mannered, and the performance of the Schumann Concerto is one of the finest in the catalogue... this is a wonderful showcase of Pires's talent...
