 charm and elegance November 17, 2012 By stefan  u. (calgary, AB) See All My Reviews "Le Tombeau played with brilliant technique yet at the same time with charm and elegance. It is regrettable that the pianists of the present days race through these pieces at neckbrake speed with precision but little attention to the beauty of sound and elegance. It's fortunate that the recordings of Monique Haas and Vlado Perlemuter are still available." Report Abuse
