Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Canadian pianist Richard Raymond...imbues the five posthumously published waltzes with glitter, dash, and flexibility. It's refreshing to encounter the posthumous E minor waltz at a gait less breathless than usual, and Raymond's well-timed transitions in the F major Op. 34 No. 3 should be noted. His fleet, slightly reserved A-flat Op. 64 No. 3 strikes me as a less iconoclastic replica of Rachmaninov's poker-faced account."
