Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Gelber’s Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel was recorded...in 1975...at the Salle Walgram in Paris. As unaccompanied soloist, Gelber is free to make his own interpretive decisions, and they are right on the mark. This is a very fine performance that stands up well to a number of others I hold in high regard, such as those by Emanuel Ax, Mikhail Rudy, and Fleisher."

-- Jerry Dubins, Fanfare
