Notes & Reviews:

This 1st recording of all 3 piano concertos by Ginastera marks the world premiere recordings of the Concierto Argentino (1935) and the original version of Piano Concerto No. 2 (1972) and the popular Piano Concerto No. 1. Ginastera hails Nissman as a "magnificent interpreter of my music - one of the best pianists in the world".

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
As far as appeal to the listener, Ginastera plays both Jekyll and Hyde, and both characters are in full display on this release. The fact that all the notes in the Scherzo can be played by the right hand is impressive. Just in this issue, I've had four or five records with absolutely stunning sound and this is one of them. Excellent notes in English.
