Notes and Editorial Reviews

"We now see Stravinsky and Debussy and Ravel and Bartok as part of the normal repertoire. I would add Berg to that list and say that Schoenberg and Webern are almost on it." - Maurizio Pollini

"This CD cannot be recommended too strongly to all piano enthusiasts and admirers of Prokofiev and Pollini"- Prokofeiv.org
