Notes & Reviews:

"One must wonder why this music isn't heard more often, but of course Enescu has never been a household name outside his native Romania and even great composers need first rate advocates to salvage them from obscurity; and this is exactly what Enescu has in the shape of Luiza Borac. The two discs... abound with ravishing pianism... Ms. Borac has such delicate touch and all the requisite power. She is recorded with exceptional truthfulness, the acoustics of St. Dunstan's Church being obviously ideal for this music. The booklet has a lot of interesting biographical details as well as good notes on the music. Altogether this is a high quality product." -Musicweb-International Recording of the Month

Gramophone Magazine
Tone-painting that conjures the subtlest shades, expansive and exotic and, in the hands of a musician as dedicated as Luiza Borac, utterly absorbing. She obviously loves the music and to own these records is to own a standing invitation to a world where impressionism, musical folklore and emotional generosity all play a crucial role.

BBC Music Magazine
A set to place Enescu among the great piano composers, superbly played and recorded.

The Gramophone
A most valuable CD ... One hopes that it might be the first instalment of a second Enescu piano music survey.
