Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
American Record Guide (11-12/97, p.174) - "...John Lill, winner of the 1970 Tchaikovsky Competition, offers few surprises. His playing is big-boned, imbuing the music with a gravity and seriousness of purpose that serves it well. What's more, his tone is warm and his fingers fleet..."

 Magnificent performance August 8, 2013 By Delphine K. (Rozelle, New South Wales) See All My Reviews "I simply love this CD. I have a number of these two concertos but I know now without doubt this is the one I will pick up each and every time. It is magnificent. John Lill is superb. He never, ever lets you down. Every performance or recording he does is memorable for it's perfection. I've never seen a bad review for him and these performances on this CD confirm for me why a bad review could ever be possible. Highly recommend to anyone." Report Abuse
