Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Robert Silverman's recording of rarely performed Copland sounds quite good.... Silverman reports that the recording was made on a tubed Revox G36. 'The LP sounds pretty much like the CD,' he says. 'The wow and flutter are still evident in all their glory, as are the tape print-throughs.' Regardless, the performance is priceless. Witness Copland's accolade, 'He played it like he wrote it,' and Stereo Review's assessment, 'One of the most amazing displays of pianism I have heard in many a year.'" -- Stereophile "Robert Silverman's recording of rarely performed Copland sounds quite good....
