Notes & Reviews:

"Donohoe and Roscoe now add their interpretations to the ranks of so many other great performances. They have a complete grasp of these works and display a wide variety of touch and color that projects the many contrasting movements. The finales of each work are in the same vein as Rachmaninoff's concertos, and they miss none of the excitement and virtuosity. I was immediately impressed with the Naxos piano sound: clear and full bodied, with great detail. I don't prefer a distant homogenous two-piano sound. I like what we have here: a close-up recording that allows one to easily identify the two piano parts." -ARG
