Notes & Reviews:

"...The colouristic range of Thibaudet's playing...is a pleasure from first note to last, as are his subtle, often illuminating rhythmic suppleness and his impeccable articulation. And Gergiev is not less subtle, and no less brilliant, conjuring up orchestral colours and textural balances which makes a nonsense of the knee-jerk claim that Grieg and Chopin, at this early stage of their careers, were near-klutzes when it came to orchestration..." **** -Siepmann, BBC
