Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Perahia's account of the Impromptus is very special indeed. Directness of utterance and purity of spirit are of the essence here, with articulation of sparkling clarity. The recording is very good and truthful in timbre." -- The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs "Perahia's account of the Impromptus is very special indeed.
