Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pollack's sheer finesse, his innate bravura and suavity of transition, rank this performance [of the Polonaise in A-flat Major] with the epics we know from Rubinstein, Horowitz... Pollack applies deft and vibrant colors to [Rachmaninov's G Major Prelude's] pastels and tender oils. The G-sharp Minor Prelude churns, rocks, and soars in liquid agitation, forceful without having been forced, persuasive and dynamic at once.

-- Gary Lemco, LA Audiophile
