 Very fine playing December 2, 2016 By James Carleton (Port Hueneme, CA) See All My Reviews "I play this CD a lot. It was one of the first things I uploaded to my iPod nano when I finally got one. It is one of my 15 or 20 'go to' recordings for those times when I don't have a hankering for any specific piece or style or music. As much as I enjoy virtually everything that Demus and Badura-Skoda do, the Kontarskys have a slight edge in the f minor Fantasy, but the A major Grand Rondo brings the former duo prominently back to my top spot. I cannot find anything to fault in this CD, which is pretty-much all one really needs to know." Report Abuse
