Notes and Editorial Reviews

Two recordings; the first (1983 & 1999) acclaimed as the best Études ever recorded by two leading reviewers; the second is a new digital recording issued for the first time. "She has all the technique necessary, but she is not tempted to vulgar displays of ego. Her performance, for lack of any finer-tuned term, must be called symphonic, a genuine symphonic Chopin of the kind that Petri or Busoni might have supplied. In fact, the comparison that springs to mind most frequently is that Zayas plays Chopin with the same commanding sweep that Petri invested in the music of Liszt. Higher praise is hard to imagine ... there is no finer version than this one." --Thomas L. Dixon, Piano & Keyboard (on the 1983 recording) Read more "...a quite fabulous amalgam of lyricism. Wit, drama and sheer pianistic craft, full of subtle and imaginative detail, lustrous tone and impeccable technique." --Donald Manildi, International Piano Quarterly (on the 1983 recording) Read less
