Notes & Reviews:

German/British pianist Myra Hess' sheer bravura playing and spontaneity is demonstrated in these historic recordings.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Dame Myra Hess will always be a great favorite; there was a sweetness and humanity in her playing uniquely her own. In the quiet passages her subtle rubato is such that every solitary note resonates with stately profundity. The encores include two recordings, from 1928 and 1940, of 'Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring', a piece she was known for. The trio is taken from a very clean set of discs; the others vary in quality.
