Notes & Reviews:

"...there's a virile quality to (Francois-Frederic Guy's) playing which comes far from amiss in these two war-time sonatas. His fingers are steely, his sound impeccably polished, and with huge reserves of strength, his sense of solidity, as if his foundations are dug deep in the ground... The rich piano sound and spacious, fairly recessed, recording seem appropriate for this music." ***** - Adrian Jack BBC
