Notes & Reviews:

"...The affection and warmth he [Gilels] brought to Schubert and Schumann are captivating. There is, too, some splendidly forthright Beethoven-playing, including a fine 'Moonlight' Sonata; and a pellucid account of Ravel's 'Jeux d'eau'. Here was a real artists, and real communicator." ***** -Donat, BBC
