Notes & Reviews:

"Louis Lortie is equal parts poet and virtuoso on this disc, and usesthe pedal as imaginatively as an artist uses a paint brush. His elegance and command of subtle multi-layered colors is based on achieving amultiplicity of tonal planes...Lortie is exceptionally well equipped to play this literature, with musical imagination and technique as solid as a rock. His masterly playing shimmers with poetic beauty. This disc is also a wonder of engineering." -Hughes, ARG
