Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This representative collection comes from the Kocsis complete survey. As it includes the Sonata and Sonatina and is suberbly recorded, it can be highly recommended."

-- Penguin Guide [2003/4 Edition]

"Kocsis realizes Bartók's intentions with extraordinary specificity in regard to pianism per se and score-reading. He takes the composer's exacting timings and metronome markings on faith, yet he also gives serious consideration to variant readings based on Bartók's own recorded performances. Most of all, Kocsis' thoroughly internalized command of Bartók's speech-like syntax brings out the music's lyrical underside that many percussive Bartók players either ignore or don't
Read more know exists."
