Notes & Reviews:

"I have never heard a pianist make such a consummate jump from Chopin's halting lyricism to the savage outbursts as Kissin does; an intensely difficult moment musically as well as pianistically, this shows Kissin as an uprecedented stylist...in the 'Barcarolle' he is marvelously poetic here--with Chopin's episodes perfectly suited to the pianist's new-found love of daydreams...a riveting document of an unmatched piano great, caught in his prime..." --Ashby, American Record Guide

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
The recordings are less than ideally beautiful but more than adequate. An astonishing achievement.
