Notes & Reviews:

"I don't think I've ever heard a disc like this before: breathtakingly original as a programme, and stunning musically. It has to be five stars all round, despite Helen Grimaud's - shall we say - 'dramatic' breathing in the slow movement of the Beethoven Sonata. This is programme planning raised to the level of high art, and all superbly performed and recorded. If only more concerts were like this!" ***** - Stephen Johnson, BBC
