Notes & Reviews:

Larrocha is unquestionably the greatest living interpreter of Spanish piano literature; this collection has two CDs devoted to this repertoire. This collection also includes many other recordings that have not been available for many years, some for the first time on CD. The collection also highlights her achievements as a sensitive interpreter of other keyboard literature from Bach, Haydn and Mozart through selected 19th century composers such as Chopin, Schumann and Liszt.
