Notes & Reviews:

"It has been a long time since we last heard such a refined yet noble and simple performance From the very beginning of the first Chopin Ballade heartfelt in an undertone, as if speaking to a close friend Soft touch, sincere dialogue with the music and impeccable technique all [make] Axs performance inimitable. - Moscow Gazette review of Emanuel Axs performance of the Chopin Ballades in recital at the St. Petersburg Great Hall in June of 2005
