Notes & Reviews:

[From a comparative review with CHA 9935, Shelley, Hickox, et al]"...Between the two recordings, I find Donohoe the more visceral and driven, especially in the last movement, a Bartokian 'Allegro barbaro'-like piece, where Donohoe's faster tempo and more percussive attacks generate a real electrical charge... If I had to choose one or another of these CDs, I'd probably go for the new Naxos, and not simply because of its bargain price. I prefer by a slight margin the edginess in Donohoe's playing..." -Fanfare
