 Beautifully played solo piano. August 8, 2020 By Jack M. (Hingham, MA) See All My Reviews "I have played this CD several times now and especially love the renditions of Ravel and Beethoven, but the other offerings are beautifully played also, even the most modern- the Liebermann. I am so glad I purchased this disc." Report Abuse
