Notes & Reviews:

"MSR Classics' four-CD tribute to the early career of Leonard Pennario celebrates a pianist whose star shone brightly for more than 60 years. Blessed with matinee idol looks, Pennario was every inch a jet-setting, white-tie-and-tails figure whose nonchalant virtuosity in a largely modern and Romantic repertoire left colleagues and admirers slack-jawed with envy and admiration... his Mussorgsky Pictures are bold and incisively characterised and his Prokofiev Visions fugitives are brilliantly alive to all of their flashing whimsy. All this and much more, lavishly presented and brilliantly remastered, make for a superb souvenir of a very special time in Pennario's long and glittering career." -Gramophone
