Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Dong-Hyek Lim (b. 1984)...brings to Chopin, Schubert Impromptus and Ravel’s own transcription of La valse a quality of radiance that betokens real music-making. Poetry and virtuosity seem in balance; each performance manifests flow and sweep. In the Chopin First Ballade I soon stopped making comparisons with past ‘greats’ and succumbed to the beauty, ease and naturalness of the playing, no small achievement."
