Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Nielsen is idiomatically played—poetic, cultured and slightly reserved, just as the composer visualized it. The accompaniment, too, is far more carefully shaped than we sometimes hear... [I]n terms of clarity, precision and poise the performances, like the recordings, are hard to fault." -- Gramophone [11/1993] "The Nielsen is idiomatically played—poetic, cultured and slightly reserved, just as the composer visualized it.
