Notes and Editorial Reviews

Edward Aldwell and Glenn Gould are outstanding. Aldwell, like Jarrett, is a match for the music. Unlike Jarrett, Aldwell is expansive and slower, quite dream-like. His version successfully transports me to other lands.

(mansfield, PA) See All My Reviews "I have performances of this ranging from Horzsowski to Walka, to Lnadowska, etc etc etc. I bought this because his performance of the Book 2 was so great. It is sheer poetry. Beautiful, luminous piano tone." Report Abuse
