 What can possibly need to be said? May 23, 2013 By James Carleton (Port Hueneme, CA) See All My Reviews "There is little that needs to be said about this CD. Half of it reprises the performance that won Cliburn the musical world. All of it is monumental. Buy it; listen to it; enjoy it." Report Abuse
