Notes & Reviews:

"...the Americans outpace the classic recordings in almost every moment, their virtuosity powerfully evident in the many scherzos and toccata-like passages...these recordings reveal surprising new facets of a body of work that is not going to stand still." -Gramophone Classical Good CD Guide
