Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gilels's playing is leonine and fiery, and his virtuosity is never less than imposing. There is much poetry, too...

-- Gramophone [6/1983]
reviewing the first CD release of the Gilels/Mehta Piano Concerto, CBS 36660


David Oistrakh plays...with the total skill and musicianship which seem as rewarding today as they did 20 years ago... [T]he Philadelphia strings are both very strong and very impressive.

His box set of the Beethoven Sonatas are my favorite piano works. This recording does not dissapoint either. What is there to say about the master?" Report Abuse
