Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

"...Gimpel made a few Vox records in the middle 1940s that some old-timers still remember. On the basis of those and this recital recorded in 1987 in Ambassador Hall, Pasadena, he was indeed an important artist. He had a big, confident technique and a melting sound...There is life here, and color, and imagination. And the Liszt and Debussy encore pieces are delicious. Very good recorded sound..." -Schonberg, ARG
