Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...the pianist does emerge as a compelling artist in some of the most subtle ones. The visionary aspect of the C sharp minor, Op. 27 No. 1 is compellingly portrayed and the complicated polyphonic shifts of the E flat, Op. 55 No. 2 come off with splendid refinement and suave pianism."
-- James Methuen-Campbell, Gramophone [11/1993]
