Notes & Reviews:

"Ashkenazy tells us in the notes with this CD (incidentally they are both extensive and interesting with excellent thumbnail descriptions of each picture) that he always thinks in terms of orchestra colour when at the keyboard, and that in making his own orchestration he has "been guided by the deeper undercurrents of this predominantly dark-coloured piece." To have his piano version and orchestration together is salutary, and the CD banding allows one to move back and forward at will... Both Ashkenazy recordings were made in the Kingsway Hall, within a few months of each other in 1982. The orchestra sound is characteristic of this venue, richly textures, yet brilliant, with glowing detail." -Gramophone
