Notes and Editorial Reviews

András Schiff. London 414 388-2 [Bk. I] and 417 236-2 [Bk. II]

Schiff plays the 48 on the piano, with the utmost sensitivity to voicing and the phrasing of counterpoint. He coaxes a lovely sound from his instrument (better captured in the 1985 recording of Book II than in the preceding year’s takes of Book I), and the experience of following him as he explores each piece is exceptionally rewarding. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection, review of London 414388 [Bk. I] and 417236 [Bk. II].
