Notes & Reviews:

"Earl Wild was 88 when he recorded this recital, and it's amazing how he's kept his legendary technique intact while continuing to evolve as an artist and explore new territory. For example, you'd never think of Wild as a Bach player. Yet his crisply-articulated B-flat Partita simply dances with joy in every movement, replete with felicitous ornaments and color shifts on the repeats... In comparing Wild's Schumann Fantasiestücke with the version Rubinstein recorded in 1976 at age 89, I venture to say that Wild sounds considerably less than one year younger!.. In sum, keep your eye on this talented young pianist: he's going places!" -Classics Today (10/10)
