Notes and Editorial Reviews

...[The Menotti Piano Concerto] recalls very strongly Ravel's G-major concerto... The slow movement is nine minutes of gorgeous, melancholy song... Earl Wild...turns in a marvelous performance of both concerti. The Menotti fizzes and sings with a light touch, and Jorge Mester matches Wild with an accompaniment that sparkles.
