Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Yesterday, to judge from the tumultuous ovation that followed his dazzling performance of Chopin's opus 28 Preludes, free of both perfume and rhetoric, then history repeated itself. Certainly, I believe that a performance of these 24 miracles of miniaturism which has more clarity, transparency and economy than Williams's interpretation is just about unthinkable."
